The Clifford Movement

Inspired by Lady Anne's gumption, The Clifford Movement, that’s Dawn Hurton, June Swift and Gwen Bainbridge, bring you stories, songs, poems and puppets with projections, celebrating the lives and landscape of the Eden Valley.

Tales will be brought to life in the automata of Dawn Hurton, as their stories unfold through song and verse. There may be tears alongside laughter and music mixed with a large dollop of witty tales from the daughters of an Eden farmer..From Wilfred, the Houdini of the pig world to Christmas marathons…many a yarn to savour and enjoy.

The Clifford Movement strive to create innovative ways to tell the tales of folk from the past who lived, loved, worked and played in Cumbria. Travel back in time with them as they unravel the mysteries of the forgotten heroes of our green and pleasant land.
