Library supporters should mark their diaries for two CSLSGL fund-raising events next month.
Bert Coules, a professional scriptwriter for over 30 years, has been invited to Church Stretton to talk about his work writing radio drama. Bert’s scripts for BBC Radio 4 include Brother Cadfael serials and the Complete Sherlock Holmes, and have been performed by actors such as Brian Blessed, Hugh Bonneville, Mark Gatiss, Oliver Reed, Michael Williams, Donald Sinden, Andrew Sachs, Judi Dench, Peter Sallis, Tom Baker and many, many more.
As well as hearing from Bert himself about the work and the people behind the microphone, audiences can experience something of the flavour of the recording studio the following week as The Stretton Players present two of Bert’s many radio dramatizations of ‘Sherlock Holmes’ at the Silvester Horne Institute.
Please support both these events, as the profits will go to the Library Support Group to help our efforts in the forthcoming Procurement Process, which will decide the future of the Library.
