A world-exclusive dramatic live reading from Durham author Benjamin Myers’ acclaimed novel, Cuddy. This audacious tour de force from the author of The Gallows Pole (now a major BBC drama) and The Offing traces the story of St Cuthbert through the centuries, through the voices of ordinary people, to his final resting place in Durham.

A special Durham Book Festival commission directed by Jack McNamara in partnership with Live Theatre and with music from The Shining Levels.

This event will be followed by a book signing with author Benjamin Myers.
