The Wilson’s Tales Project will be presenting a selection of nautical stories at Paxton House on Sunday under the watchful eye of Admiral Sir David Milne (pictured above), frequent visitor to the house 200 years ago.

Members of The Belford Players will be performing a dramatisation of The Prisoner of War in the Picture Gallery. The action will progress to the drawing room, where Mary Kenny, well-known local story-teller, will recount the tale of Tibbie Fowler in both spoken words and song. The audience will then move upstairs to Penelope’s bedchamber, the location for the story of The Monomaniac.

The evening begins at 7.30pm and tickets are on sale price £7.50 from The Maltings.
