Light in the Darkness @ Fell Foot

Fell Foot, Newby Bridge
Home > Lake District Events > Light in the Darkness @ Fell Foot

Pull up a seat by the fire and spend an evening embracing the arrival of winter with spine-tingling music and spell-binding wintery tales.

The coldest month comes just before the spring, like the darkest hours come just before the dawn, but “when the green earth is sleeping beneath a blanket of snow, this is the time for storytelling.”

The Footprint building is a unique straw-bale building heated by wood-stove, so wrap up warm, bring a torch and wear sturdy boots or shoes in case there’s time to include a short trip into the woods before we retire indoors for a performance of songs and stories from across Europe celebrating winter’s stark magic and beauty. Parking is limited so please car-share if possible.

Tatie Pot are a collective of Cumbrian singers, musicians and storytellers who weave magical narratives through stories and songs, inspired by the traditions of the British Isles and especially Cumbria, our connection to the earth and the turning year. Story-teller Jessie McMeekin and musician Dave Camlin are joined by singers Angie Power and Gilli Goodfellow to form an ensemble who frame Jessie’s powerful and inspiring stories with an enchanting sound world of rich harmony. Come and be drawn into a world of imagination and mystery, become part of our temporary community conjured up through the power of story, music and song.
