A CRITICAL hit from the Edinburgh Festival will be performed in Selby next week.

A Hundred Different Words For Love is storytelling in the style of a Richard Curtis-esque romantic comedy.

Town Council Arts Officer Chris Jones said: "Every August I take a trip up to Edinburgh to search out the most interesting and exciting shows from the world’s largest performing arts event.

"A Hundred Different Words For Love was by far and away the best thing I saw there last year. It is a warm, enthralling, laugh-out-loud rom-com told with incredible enthusiasm and joie de vivre. For anyone who enjoys a good Richard Curtis movie, from Four Weddings and a Funeral through to Notting Hill and Love Actually, this is the perfect winter warmer that’ll leave you with a huge glow in your heart."

The show will be performed by creator James Rowland at Selby Town Hall on Friday, December 14.

Tickets cost £14 on the door, £12 in advance, and are available from the Town Hall, by phoning 01757 708449 or at selbytownhall.co.uk
