The Laurence Sterne Trust

Sensations Of A Wound: Jim Boyes & Belinda O'Hooley
Saturday 24 February 2018
St Michael's Church, Thirsk Bank, Coxwold YO61 4AD
In celebration of the 250th anniversary of A Sentimental Journey, The Laurence Sterne Trust will be presenting a series of talks by individuals who have undertaken Different Journeys.

With new songs – lyrical, funny, sharply telling and atmospheric – award-winning singer songwriter, Jim Boyes, tells a little-known story of the First War in a first solo project. “We knew he had been wounded, but my grandfather, Robert “Croppie” Boyes, never talked about his army service – we heard nothing about it.” But Jim’s discovery of a long-lost account Croppie had written after the War changed all that – and sparked this unique and moving concert. Combined with contemporary images powerfully evoking a world at war, Jim’s songs follow Croppie’s long trail from his home in Scarborough, to Flanders, Italy and beyond. Their vividly telling narratives and unsentimental humour had reviewers praising an “amazing story, simply told”, “an emotional journey for the listener – though certainly not a downbeat one.”

Jim will be accompanied by singer-songwriter and pianist Belinda O'Hooley (O'Hooley & Tidow, The Winterset) for a special evening in St Michael's church.

Hugh Thomson

An Evening With Wainwright Prize Winner, Hugh Thomson
Wednesday 28 March 2018
Waterstones York
"Everywhere Thomson goes, he finds good stories to tell." New York Times Book Review

Join us for a special evening with Hugh Thomson, winner of the inaugural Wainwright Prize for Best Nature and Travel writing, discussing his latest book, One Man and a Mule.

For centuries mules were used to transport goods across Britain. Strong, sturdy and able to carry a great deal of weight, they made ideal walking companions – as long as you didn’t ask them to do anything they didn’t want to do! Now Hugh Thomson revives that ancient tradition, using his experience of hiking with pack mules across the Andes to have what he calls ‘a South American adventure in England’.

Hugh takes his stubborn, cantankerous, yet ever trusty mule Jethro across England from the Yorkshire Moors to the Lake District, using old drovers’ roads and mule tracks that have fallen into disrepair. These wild parts of the North of England used mules extensively in the past and by recreating that experience, Hugh pays tribute to the forgotten muleteers who once roamed these hills.
