Niggle is a painter. Not a very successful one, partly because he has so many other things to do. For some time he has been obsessed with one particular canvas – a curious picture of a tree with a vast landscape stretching out behind it. The painting keeps getting bigger and bigger, but Niggle has a journey to make …

In 1939 Tolkien was despairing of ever bringing his great work The Lord of the Rings to a conclusion. One morning he woke up with the story Leaf by Niggle complete in his mind and wrote it down. This poignant story, about an artist on a curious journey, is often seen as an allegory of the writer’s own creative process and life.

Surrounded by ladders, bicycles, easels and heirlooms, Richard Medrington (Jean from The Man Who Planted Trees) recounts Tolkien’s miniature masterpiece, with a soundtrack composed by Karine Polwart and Michael John McCarthy.

The singers and musicians are known in the area as J J Pig who are an acapella shanty group, regularly singing at the popular Pilot Boat Inn folk nights in Lyme and play for local morris dance teams.  They have teamed up with West Country singer Amanda Boyd and Windrose Rural Media Trust, a media charity who has been collecting and preserving film of local life from Dorset, Wiltshire and Somerset for over 30 years.

The project is supported with funds by Lyme Town Council and West Dorset District Council.

An informative programme about the films and songs will be given to the audience on the night of the performance.

The award-winning show about a lost Nick Drake recording tells the extraordinary story of how one man shared a recording no one knew existed.

Since his tragic death in the mid seventies, Nick Drake’s haunting music has influenced countless artists – including Paul Weller, Kate Bush & Radiohead. But how has the discovery of a previously unheard recording touched the lives of a very special group of people: the lucky few, who were chosen to hear it?

Strange Face Adventures with a Lost Nick Drake Recording is the story of a discovered tape, a lost Nick Drake recording and how the man who found it chose to share it in an extraordinary way. Humorous and poignant  ‘Strange Face’ celebrates life, coincidences and the legacy of singer songwriter Nick Drake.
