STOURPORT music fans and book worms are invited to a special evening of songs and literature with two acclaimed composers.

The Bookshop Band will be performing their unique style of literature inspired music at Bishops Wood Centre on Thursday October 25 at 7.30pm.

Award-winning multi-instrumentalists Beth Porter and Benedict Please create music from their own personal responses to books, bringing the texts onto the stage.

They use their plethora of instruments, including the cello, ukelele, guitar, glockenspiel, harmonium, and their own voices, to resonate what the book is about through folk and pop songs.

The two aim to entice audiences with their cinematic sound, which is often emotional, heart-wrenching and funny.

The band also travel with a mobile bookshop for the audience to discover new favourites.

The band have collaborated some big names in the literary world including Philip Pullman, Yann Martel, Louis de Bernieres, Joanne Harris and Ben Okri.

The event is part of the Shindig Rural Arts programme, and is suitable for those aged nine years and above.

Tickets cost £10 for adults and £8 for concessions.
