A NEWARK version of the Canterbury Tales was performed in Canterbury at the weekend as part of the Canterbury Festival.

The Newarke Canterbury Tales, written by Peter Tyrer, of Hawton, and with costumes made by Helen Tyrer, describes the journey of pilgrims in 1378 travelling from Newark to Canterbury to see the tomb of Thomas Becket.

The work was performed in St Peter's Methodist Church at the end of a tour that also visited Stamford and Rochester.
