It is a very intimate thing, hearing someone read. A ‘live’ audiobook that goes straight through your ear and into your brain. And your heart. This cosy art form is one of life’s quiet pleasures.

Next Friday, a wonderful young actress called Sarah Day will be reading my story and you’re welcome to come along. It’s free.

D E E P is a dark, urban fairy ‘tail’ about a boy from Buxton who falls in a pool then discovers that someone is down there. Or some ‘thing’. With scenes set in our own museum as well as Blake Mere pool, it’s Buxton but not as we know it.

It starts at 6pm prompt on May 31st, free but you do need to book as places are limited. Just click on the link below.

Part of the festival, supported by Arts Council England.
