Tom Ratcliffe, one of the festival organisers, said: “Theatre groups are often difficult to find, especially ones prepared to perform in relatively small venues. Brighouse Arts Festival have been very lucky in having two exceptional ones on their programme this year.”

Mikron is the touring theatre company with the reputation for tackling large scale subjects and turning history into vivid and dramatic entertainment.

They tour on a narrowboat, Tyseley, in the summer and by road in the autumn, to every conceivable type of venue, reaching audiences that other companies cannot.

They will roll into town on Saturday, September 20 for a 7.30pm show. Tickets are £11 and £9 concessions for their Troupers show.

While Talking Stock is two one act plays by Alan Stockdill, who is carving out something of a reputation with this small company with lots of talent.

Offerings include a feel-good comedy and the show will double up as a fundraiser for Macmillan Cancer Support. Tickets are £10 for shows on September 17 at the Salvation Army Citadel.

Tickets for both events are available at Harrison Lord, Simply Flowers, Ryecorn Wholefoods, Brighouse Library, online at www.brighousefestival.co.uk or by telephone at 01484 718324.
