Murder in Ashton

On Thursday night I visited Ashton under Lyne, which is on the fringe of Manchester, for the first time in years, to host another performance of ‘Who Killed George Hargrave?’ at Ashton Library. The event was organised by Tameside Council’s Reader Development Officer, Chris Smith, and all sixty tickets were sold a long time in advance of the event, which was very pleasing.

Each cast of actors that performs the event brings something different to it, and almost always something that I find rather appealing. That was again the case on Thursday – the actors were likeable and engaging, and the audience responded very warmly to their interpretation of Martha, Arthur, Camilla and Richard, the four witnesses who are also suspects in the killing of the late lamented Mr Hargrave.

There’s one more performance of the event scheduled for this year – at Blackpool, on 2 October.
