Welcome to The Halifax Arts Podcast for October 2020. In this month’s podcast, Janet Warham talks to Laurie Sansom who, since the summer of 2019, has been the artistic director of Halifax-based Northern Broadsides theatre company. He discusses his career in the arts and what attracted him to come and work in our northern town. He also explains how Northern Broadsides have been continuing to function through the period of the lockdown, most recently in conjunction with The Piece Hall by producing a piece of topical dance entitled The Aftermath. Our resident film reviewers Steve Archer, Judy Green and Jeremy Walker chat about a new version of The Secret Garden, the acclaimed Rocks, Little Joe and After We Collided. Staying on the theme of film – and just in time for Halloween – Alex Abel discusses her three favourite horror films; Misery, Let The Right One In and Pan’s Labyrinth. The podcast finishes with Steve Archer given us a run-down of his must-see streaming TV dramas of Autumn 2020.
