Forma presents a one-off performance and artists' talk by the performance art group Lone Twin, who collaborated with Alnwick's award'winning town crier during Summer 07 to create a unique series of proclamations that tell stories of places, events and communities back to the people of the region.

Artists Gregg Whelan and Gary Winters will tell the story of the making of the project, showing footage of performances. The talk will be followed by a book launch with signings by the artists and the Town Cryer. Audiences receive a free copy of the book, Town Crying - published by Forma, which documents these unique events.
