Yes, if you followed Stephen Fry’s tweet you are in the right place. The Newarke Canterbury Tales performance was on Saturday 26th October, 2019 at 7.30pm at St Peter’s Methodist Church in St Peter’s Street in the Centre of Canterbury. But, never mind, please read on as it will help to understand the wide scope of nidotherapy. In JB Priestley’s Good Companions a group of people who would never normally have met join together to form a happy band of optimists who grow and grow as they perform in places round the country. The Newarke Canterbury Tales are supported by NIDUS-UK because they are very similar; they are uplifting and mental health improvers/mental illness hoovers, whichever you prefer. They take us back to 1378, not the greatest time to be English as people were recovering from the Black Death, but along came this guy, Geoffrey Chaucer, and gave everyone a lift. So we are updating Geoffrey a little so that you too can have a lift, can forget all about Brexit, which in 1378 was a form of chain-mail, and join the 30 strong cast in old-fashioned escapism. You can also buy the book – also Newarke Canterbury Tales with an evocative cover – if you wish at a knockdown price on Amazon from its sites around the world.
