Last Resort - Settle Stories festival 2018.

Settle Stories festival is this weekend from April 6 to 8 and promises to provide more than 70 artistic experiences for the whole family.

Log in and play Wi-Fi Wars, a record-breaking live comedy game show. Enjoy the kind of theatre which seeps into the subconscious with Proto-type Theatre’s A Machine they’re Secretly Building. Immerse yourself in a video goggle performance with And the Birds Fell From the Sky.

The family events are going to make a splash - join Circo Rum Ba Ba for an underwater adventure. A 50ft inflatable whale will be transported to Settle Market Place.

Will you dare step inside its belly? Don’t miss The Queen and the Jester a festival premiere that will leave you in stitches.

The festival starts at 5pm tomorrow (Friday) with the launch of the listening gallery in a phone box. Then at 7.30pm in Settle Victoria Hall, watch A Machine they’re Secretly Building (16 and over).

On Saturday from 10am until 4pm, visit Karvan, a 16ft artistically renovated caravan in which you are invited to travel around the world through fiction and poetry.

There is a festival premiere at 2pm on Saturday The Queen and the Jester with daft songs and sensible stories.

On Saturday at 7.30pm, enjoy ‘Wi-fi Wars’ where you log in with your smartphone/tablet and compete in a range of games, quizzes and challenges to win the show, and prizes.
