The spaces and places of fairy tales: exploring the world of Lost, Found and Told

Whether you have purchased a copy of the tales or are still thinking about doing so, you are warmly invited to sit back and enjoy this free event we held at the Literary & Philosophical Society on Wednesday 16th December 2020. Originally filmed as a live stream event via You Tube, we recorded the session and it is now available for you to enjoy at any time. We have also downloaded the audio file onto Soundcloud if you would rather listen to it as a podcast. 

Watch: Cinzia Hardy (outgoing Artistic Director and the Director of Lost, Found and Told) talks to Fiona Ellis (Writer of Lost, Found and Told); Matthew Tuckey (Sound Designer) and Katie Doherty (Composer) to discuss how we made the tales and how they connect us to the Northumberland landscape. This is followed by a short Q&A. 

Watch here. 

Listen: The same conversation has been recorded and uploaded to Soundcloud for you to download and enjoy as a podcast.
