Visual show for all ages

EXPECT humour, sadness and stories of reconciliation and forgiveness when an absorbing storytelling experience comes to Taddington Village Institute next week.

Xolisile’s Song is a tale set in South Africa and North East England, and combines music, dance, puppetry, storytelling and drama.

The show, which has been commissioned especially for rural venues and will delight and enchant audiences of all ages, has been created by the North East-based theatre company Dodgy Clutch.

It features two life affirming stories from across the world which are linked by a common theme: hope - and by the journey of the swallow which connects them. A talented cast of performers, singers, dancers and musicians from South Africa and the UK perform.

Xolisile’s Song visits Taddington Village Institute on Wednesday March 23, at 7.30pm. Tickets are priced £8.50 on the door, £8 in advance and £7 for senior citizens and under-16s.

They are available from The Queens Arms in Taddington, Overdale Veterinary Centre in Buxton, or by calling 01298 85384 or 01298 85539. The 90-minute show is suitable for adults and children aged six and over.
