Polkas and Pustules


An historical drama written by Wendy Freer for The Friends of the Bath Grounds depicting in drama the history of Ashby's 19th century Ivanhoe Spa Baths.


The Master Hosier


An historical drama written by Wendy Freer. This is the dramatic story of the last days of a Master Hosier's house and workshops. Shot on location at Wigston Framework Knitters' Museum, this is a FICTIONAL story and is not an attempt to portray the real life inhabitants of this property. It tells of an old lady's struggle to keep her late husband's home and work premises exactly as they had always been.


Score Draw


A drama written by Kate Mallinder, this is the story of a year on the allotment and how it related to a different journey through a difficult year.
