Life of William Barnes; West Stafford, Dorset; Tim Laycock; The Year Clock; Sell-Out Performance

At the end of the show


"The Year Clock, the Life of William Barnes, performed by Dorset’s own Tim Laycock at West Stafford Village Hall on Sunday April 26. In this fully dramatised piece, with musical accompaniment from fiddle player, Colin Thompson, Tim explores issues surrounding Barnes’ writings, such as why did a highly educated 19th century teacher and parson choose to write poetry in a dialect few people could read?" Dorset Echo.

Blackmore Vale Magazine

An outstanding performance by Tim Laycock and Colin Thompson in an ideal location, West Stafford Village Hall (the old village school). Deeply moving, both sad and very funny; beautifully acted, with strong design, music and direction.

Bournemouth Daily Echo review - "This Artsreach production was a delight from start to finish and especially appropriate when performed in a friendly village setting...That has got to be a winner" (Marion Cox).
