Lost Found and Told Northumberland audio tales

Lost Found and Told: New Audio Tales for Northumberland is a collection of seven original short stories written by Fiona Ellis, set in the border county of Northumberland.

Acclaimed Northumberland-based performing arts company November Club has released a new collection of audio tales inspired by traditional fairy tales and drawing on the rich heritage, landscape and people of Northumberland which you can now listen to from the comfort of your home or while you take a stroll in the countryside.

Originally due to be a touring production, the stories have been transformed into audio tales featuring original music and narration by Janine Birkett, Phil Corbitt, Zoe Lambert and Jane Wade.

With original music composed by Katie Doherty and traditional tunes woven throughout, Lost Found and Told are tales of losing and finding, of courage - the false and the true kinds, of love and kindness in unexpected places, and of the strength and resilience of Northumberland.

The collection of stories will appeal to adults and children age 8 plus, but younger children will also enjoy listening. Each tale lasts approximately 10 minutes, making them great for bedtime stories, or as the nights draw in, listening as a family.

Listeners will be transported to the landscape that inspired the tales and the characters they will encounter.

Lost Found Told: New Audio Tales for Northumberland is available to buy as a digital collection from Friday 6 November. The collection costs £10 and is available on the music streaming platform Bandcamp.
