I’m just home from London. There’s so much going on down there of course but my friends there are incredibly impressed with the amount of literary activity we have on offer here in Cumbria. Coming up later this month is the Kendal Yarns Festival of New Plays. This amazing project has invited anyone who would like to have a go to write a 15 minute play with a Kendal theme with the promise that it will be performed. 58 plays were submitted! They will be performed for free in a variety of venues between 25th and 30th July. What an opportunity for aspiring playwrights. Don’t miss this amazing event. You can check performance dates and venues on kendalcommunitytheatre.org.
