The Fairy Teller tells the story of Princess Isabella and her life-long friend Evelyn, who unexpectedly embark on an adventure that leads them to discover the true story behind the name of their village. A wonderful kingdom called Fairyland. A hidden world of beautiful, powerful fairies is revealed to them; and, along with their new friend Sam, the children meet the kind creator of Fairyland, King Amos. Known by many as "The Fairy Teller", King Amos shows Princess Isabella that she is no ordinary girl, but is in fact a fairy with magical powers. As Isabella, Evelyn and Sam spend time exploring Fairyland and learning of the fairy powers they each possess, the children soon discover the king has very little time to live, as Fairyland's evil witch has stolen the magic potion that keeps his power strong. Together, they bravely face the challenge of finding the magic potion to save King Amos - but will they be able to save him in time?

Skerryvore

Skerryvore first formed on the tiny Isle of Tiree off Scotland's west coast in 2005. Back then, the band consisted of Tiree-born brothers Daniel Gillespie (accordion) and Martin Gillespie (bagpipes, whistles and accordion) who bonded with holidaymaker Fraser West (drums and vocals) and friend Alec Dalglish (lead vocals and guitar) over a shared love of music: everything from traditional to rock and jazz. It was this mix of musical styles and sounds that set the path for the band's 2005 debut album, 'West Coast Life.' The more the fledgling band experimented with fusing together this mix of musical styles, the most their signature sound evolved, aided by the arrival of Barry Cauldfield (bass and vocals) and Craig Espie (fiddle) in time for their second album, 'On The Road', in 2007.

Bronwynne Brent

Born and raised in the Mississippi Delta, this American roots song-writer has the kind of stop-in-your-tracks voice that sounds like Southern Sunshine. Though her album, Stardust, was recorded in Seattle, it's the kind of album that could only come out of the south. There's a hint of Delta blues behind the ache in her songs, a glimpse of honky-tonk twang, an echo of riverboat can-cans, a whiff of Morricone, and an atmosphere of the darker side of country songwriting. Harkening back to the glory days of Lee Hazlewood and Gram Parsons, Brent's songs tap into the dark undercurrent of country that starts with old Appalachian murder ballads and continues to today's current crop of psychedelic country songwriters. Like a Juke Joint Nancy Sinatra, Bronwynne Brent unites all the best elements of Southern American roots music, and ties these many different influences into a sound that's comforting and refreshing.

Joe Newberry and April Verch

Joe Newberry grew up in a family full of singers and dancers. He took up the guitar and banjo as a teenager and learned fiddle tunes from great Missouri fiddlers.

April Verch grew up listening to her Dad's country band play for dances in the Ottawa Valley. She started step dancing at age three and fiddling at age six.

Both Newberry and Verch became masters of their traditions and tour the world with their respective bands and projects. Yet they never forget the roots of their music, that connection to people in the audience, on the dance floor, to the community sparked by a good song. For those veteran performers who come from distinct traditions and parts of the world, their collaboration is fuelled by their kindred passion for bringing people together to celebrate traditional music. Blues and ballads stem into Canadian regional styles and originals. Their voices blend in harmony, their tasteful instrumentals prove that these masters have nothing left to prove, and then their feet kick up the dust in perfect rhythm... and together, they make you remember why this music existed in the first place.

Single Spies by Alan Bennett

Winner of the Olivier Award for Best Comedy.

Espionage, interrogation and double-lives are explored in these two award-winning plays.

With his customary wit and observation Alan Bennett delves into the world of espionage, forgery and double-lives.

In her dressing room in a Moscow theatre, actress Coral Browne receives an inebriated visitor, a familiar, upper-class Englishman. An invitation slipped under her door later reveals her visitor to be disgraced spy Guy Burgess. She is invited to dine at his Moscow flat armed with the instruction to "bring a tape measure"... Funny and engaging, An Englishman Abroad explores the fascinating world of a British double-agent as he comes to terms with his new life in exile.

A Question of Attribution follows Anthony Blunt, revered Art Historian and Surveyor of the Queen's pictures who accidently encounters the Queen whilst trying to replace her much-loved Titian painting. A sharp and dangerous exchange of wits ensues, but will he reveal to her what would later be revealed to the world - that the man who worked in her heart of her household was also a Soviet spy? A sharp, pithy play that explores the murky shadows that lurk behind even the most familiar of facades.

Giving Up Guilt

By Carolyn Drury and Cliff Ardle

Giving Up Guilt is a story of modern living when it seems that everything except being thin, keeping fit, and being successful and beautiful leaves most of us with a guilty conscience about something or other. It is a story of ordinary people who do their best, most of the time. Some of them work in the local Leisure Centre where there is trouble afoot. The Slimming Club has some of the women in its power whilst some of the men prefer pie and chips in the Dog and Duck. There is plenty of guilt about although some people don't feel as guilty as they should.

The Ghost Train

By Arnold Ridley

Inspired to write this play in 1923 after becoming stranded overnight at Mangotsfield railway station, it took Arnold Ridley, English actor and playwright, only one week to write The Ghost Train.

The play ran for over a year and sold out in its original London theatrical run. It is now regarded as a modern classic.

The plot revolves around a party of assorted railway travellers, who find themselves stranded in the waiting room of an isolated country station in the evening.

The Station Master tries to get them to leave the site as he is closing the station for the night. They are all reluctant to leave due to lack of alternative accommodation for several miles, but are warned that if they remain they may be in danger from the supernatural spectre of an old railway carriage train - the ghost of one that was fatally wrecked in the locality several years before.

He tells them that it sometimes haunts the particular line they are now on and can bring death upon those who set eyes upon it. Incredulous of his story, they still refuse to leave, and he departs leaving them facing a night on the station...
