A Theatre Production – The Price of Land on Friday March 6th

Eight voices, eight stories, eight working lives, eight moments spread across half a millennium. Each playing a part in building our unique Cumbrian landscape.

This powerful verse-drama gives a voice to the forgotten people of the County: the quarrymen and miners, charcoal burners, peat-cutters, drovers, drystone-wallers and farmers of Cumbria. Through a series of episodes from 1568 to 2018 we hear stories that remind us that our experience of living and working in the rural North today has its roots in a shared and often uncompromising history. Written by South Lakes poet and author Geoff Cox, and directed by the award-winning Kevin Dyer, this production ranges widely across the Cumbrian landscape, brilliantly captured in a shifting projection of stills and film, and set against a location-made soundtrack composed by Barrow born sound artist Damian Rose

Community Farmers’ Market, Craft Fair and Cafe every third Saturday of the month – supplying local produce and crafts (predominantly made in the village) for sale with a pop up cafe serving drinks, cakes and snacks organised and run by members of the Village Hall Committee and volunteers to serve the village residents and draw visitors into the village to support the local businesses.

The first regular monthly live music event was on Friday Nov 8th featuring Green Man’s Apprentice. The monthly music events are hosted in collaboration with Eden Valley Arts Network and supported by Eden District Arts Network. Tickets £5 are available from Stainton Post Office
