Settle Sessions: Yorkshire Relish

A Celebration of North Yorkshire in Film, Poetry and Food.

featuring.  Paul Mills

                    Ann Harding

              and Members of Settle Poets

The evening will feature poet Paul Mills’ You Should've Seen Us: a selection of films from the Yorkshire Film Archive edited to combine the moving image with a recorded spoken text. The presentation covers a period from 1908 to 1958.  Audiences hear Paul's poems, spoken by himself and actors. Some are commentaries, others imagined voices of people in North Yorkshire from before, during and after the Second World War, so that a picture emerges of a period of cultural change. 

In these poems Paul Mills has taken archive film as his inspiration and has produced a wonderfully stirring, thoughtful and ultimately celebratory body of work that spins out from specific histories into all our families, all our lives.
