A new season of rural touring shows at Leadenham Village Hall opens this week.

Northumberland Touring Company (NTC) brings A Wife Or The Gallows to the venue on Friday, September 25, at 7.30pm.

The professional theatre company describe the show as ‘an evening of tale-telling misadventures with comic, swashbuckling and light-hearted traditional stories, linked through character, music and song in a ‘Canterbury Tales’, story-telling format’.

It includes popular Northern tales such as A Snowball in June and Mideside Maggie’s Bannock, The Adventures of Launcelot Errington and his Nephew Mark and other ‘unremembered classics’, the troupe say.

Tickets are priced at £10 from Hilary Proctor on 01400 272835.

Wine and soft drinks will be available at the venue which was built with the help of Arts Council funding on the proviso a percentage of bookings had to be arts based.

The show is also being performed at Heydour parish hall at Aisby on September 26 at 7.30pm. For tickets call 01529 455501 or email: norman.hatcliff@btinternet.com
