Marcel K. Andrews: The Silvergate Restoration
Saturday 16th March
11:00 – 1:00
A gang of builders restore a group of 18th-century Norfolk cottages after their damage in a fire. We follow the lives of the builders, the challenges they face at home and work. Funny, at times romantic, as well as bit of the darkness of human nature.


Alexandra Carey: The Light that Bends Round Corners
Saturday 23rd March
11:00 – 1:00
The Light that Bends Round Corners is a story of two women, one who finds herself living far from where she ever imagined, and one who has spent her whole life fighting for a better life away from her abusive husband. The story was inspired by Alexandra Carey’s own experience living in Malaysia for seven years. Unusual, suspenseful, tone perfect, painful, and funny.
