RADIO 4 regular and stand up poet Kate Fox and actress Joey Holden will bring their show Where There's Muck, There's Bras to a Teesdale venue.

The 'hilarious and inspiring' stand-up show explores the way women are represented in ideas of Northernness.

Mixing storytelling and poetry it uncovers the hidden history of the writers, scientists, politicians, protestors, musicians and other heroines who the North so diverse.

Originally commissioned and performed as part of the 2018 Great Exhibition of the North, the show debuted at the Live Theatre, Newcastle last June where it was a sell-out. It is currently touring the region and will be at Barningham Village Hall on Saturday, February 23 through the Highlights Rural Touring Scheme.

Robin Brooks, a member of Barningham Village Hall Committee, said: “This is a hilarious but thoughtful show that celebrates the real Northern Powerhouse– Northern women. And the audience will have a chance to share their own stories."The show is coming to us under the banner of the Highlights Rural Touring Scheme that brings professional music and theatre to village halls and community venues across the North Pennines and Cumbria.

"We’ve had a great range of shows over the years from Highlights – theatre, music, cabaret and poetry – and the small size of the Village Hall makes it a particularly good venue for shows like this where a lot depends on close rapport between the audience and performers.”

The show starts at 7.30pm and tickets are £9.50 for adults, £4 for children and £20 for families. Call 01833-621203 or email rpbrooks72@gmail.com to reserve or book online at highlightsnorth.co.uk. Show-goers can take their own drinks.
