Filey Literature Festival is thrilled to be hosting this acclaimed performance based on the life of Pennine farmer, Hannah Hauxwell.

Hannah's story, subject of many TV documentaries, has had us spellbound for decades.

This Gig Theatre Production from Karen and Shelagh is a delightfully thought-provoking mix of spoken word, song and visual imagery illustrating Hannah's struggle with the elements through her life-enhancing uplifting story.

The 55 minute show is a mix of new spoken word and original song interspersed with popular music from her life from the likes of Gene Austin, The Ink Spots, Roger Williams and His Orchestra, Edith Piaf and of course Vaughan Williamswhich provide an opportunity to reminisce and for the audience to participate, visually illustrated by a pastiche of clips from the many TV documentaries and other relevant visual imagery.
