Bristol Culture looks forward to this new year in Bristol:
In theatre, following the resounding success of Cinderella and Peter Pan, director Sally Cookson turns her talents to more adult fare in Jane Eyre at Bristol Old Vic, performed in two parts from February 10.
The Yorkshire Post talks about the traditional New Year’s Eve fell race at the Pennine moors near Haworth:
About 500 competitors, many of them kitted out in all manner of fancy dress outfits, took part in the Daleside Brewery Auld Lang Syne run, which takes place in the heart of Bronte country. The six-mile race, which starts from Penistone Hill Country Park, near Haworth, attracts runners from across the UK. (...)The Nouveau Shanty posts about Jane Eyre; Bookish Whimsy selects Death of a Dowager by Joanna Campbell Slan as her best Jane Eyre derivative of the year; The Modern Novel reviews Minae Mizumura's A True Novel.
The race, now in its 20th year, is organised by Dave and Eileen Woodhead, who have been organising fell races on the Brontë moors for about 30 years.
