A SHOW telling the story of the Spennymoor Settlement arts and education centre will be performed at a County Durham church today.

Enter CIC, based in Ferryhill, will perform Settle North at Etherley Methodist Church, South Road, High Etherley, near Bishop Auckland, at 2pm and 7pm.

The Settlement was established in the 1930s to bring cultural and practical skills to Spennymoor, County Durham, during the depression and became known as the Pitman's Academy.

The show features music and drama to bring to life the lives and work of warden William G Farrell, painters Norman Cornish, Tom McGuiness and Herbert Dees and writers such as Sid Chaplin.

Norman Cornish retrospective opens at The Bowes Museum

Tickets are £12 each on the door. Car parking will be available and signposted.
