Tails at new book launch

AN ex-pupil of Fairfield County Primary and Cavendish Grammar schools is to launch a new book in Whaley Bridge.

There will also be a performance of Snailbeach Tails, written and performed by author Julia Dean-Richard, at the Uniting Church Hall, Whaley Bridge, at 7.30pm on May 26.

The original story, full of myth, magic and mayhem, inspired Julia, musician Simon Cresswell and artist Fran O’Boyle to bring together words, music and pictures into a performance for adults and older children who like stories.

Tickets are £6.50 and there will be light refreshment during the interval.
