Lost Stories of Buxton

Thursday 19th July
Buxton Library
an event as part of Buxton Festival Fringe

the strangest street in Macclesfield (we weren’t sure we wanted it in Buxton!)

There were silly stories and horrible stories and slightly sticky stories involving marshmallows….
There were ideas about unicorns and ice cream

The city of the Gorgs sheltered in a mountain

While the Gorgs live in an underground city,
With a cold water supply from the mountain
Where a network of trees
Feeds energy to the city.
There under that mountain,
The aliens live, secret and safe
Waiting for the Doctor and a visit from the Tardis.

In the morning we had casual visitors, drifting in and being netted by our pens and glue and excitement and mess. After lunch the lovely Drama Club from The Rossendale Trust in Macclesfield and everything got even stranger with…..

practising cackles

A spooky house with long-bone fences
Where Rupert’s brothers are trapped
While he laughs his most sinister laugh.

The strangest street in the world
(or at least in Macc):
Adam’s graveyard,
Ann’s farm house,
A purple castle,
A haunted house with a burning roof
Whence everyone is trying to escape.

 

With many thanks to all our artists and storytellers,

to Buxton Festival fringe for encouraging the event

and to Buxton Library for hosting it!

This event was supported by The Bingham Trust
