In May, Hexham Book Festival launched "Story Space" in support of Children North East - a charity that provides grass-roots support to disadvantaged families and children. A host of authors, artists and other well-known faces read some of their favourite children's stories at Story Space online. Kathryn reads "The Dam", by David Almond. The target audience is 5 years and upwards, so get a blanket, a cup of tea and settle down for a story!
A true story about a young girl and her dad visiting the Kielder Valley. Who might they be? Kathryn and her dad Mike Tickell contribute to this atmospheric programme. You can listen to it here on BBC Sounds.
Full concert listings are in Live Dates. Stay safe and well everyone. Kathryn will keep you company on BBC Radio 3's Music Planet. Keep an eye/ear on the schedule for Music Planet. Next programme, 21 March at 16:00, with more episodes coming up.
