On Wednesday evening we welcomed friends, partners, colleagues, press, performers, artists to our opening night at The Exchange. We’ve just about recovered!

Guests explored The Story Republic, admiring the art work, poetry and film created as part of the schools programme, and having a go at the interactive games inspired by Causley poems. Our Story Republicans performed using the wondrous acoustics of The Exchange, to the delight of everyone present. A little taster of their performance here – The Farewell Shanty by Merv Vincent
