Singer and broadcaster Isla St Clair will be entertaining audiences with her show Heroes and Villains of Screen and Folklore.

Arranged by Northants Touring Arts, the show will focus on an age when people sang about folk heroes, watched the early days of film and television when villains had moustaches, and wore black hats.

Said to be a “bright and breezy” production, the show will be filled with songs and film clips aimed at helping audiences to step back in time.

Isla will sing about the good and bad folk of the past. Her nostalgic selection of characters from folk songs and the early days of television are said to be full of surprises.

Joining Isla will be film-maker Patrick King, who will recall the old ‘screen baddies’. There will be plenty of hilarious clips from old westerns, gangster movies and cartoons, interwoven with Patrick’s humorous insight into contemporary villainy, gained from working as an investigative journalist on series such as Cook Report.

The show will be performed at All Saints Church in High Street, Earls Barton, on Saturday at 7.30pm. Tickets cost £10 or £8. To book ring 01604 811332.
