We will be at the beautiful West Greenwich Library from 19:00 to 22:30 (we really wanted it to be dawn, but that’s plain silly on a weekday and not fair on the library staff, and half ten allows people to get the last train). Fine tuning of times will occur as soon as we’ve finished editing the stories and worked out the length of the music sets.
Music will be supplied by
Ian Kennedy & Sarah Lloyd folk duo, singers and multi-instrumentalists, with a fine line in lullabies, which we hope will feature in their plans.
Vassilis Chatzimakris Trio Cretan songs about the night in all its rich variety.
Vocal Chords Local community choir with a strong gutsy approach to traditional folk carols and other songs of winter and darkness.
We have stories from David Mathews, David McVey, Frances Gapper, Cherry Potts, Neil Brosnan, Pauline Walker, Sarah Evans, Wendy Gill.
and poems from Abigail Beckel, Bob Beagrie, Sarah James.
read by Patsy Prince, Annalie Wilson, Saul Reichlin and Lorraine Spenceley
