Join Uninvited Guests and Fuel theatre companies later this month for Love Letters Straight From Your Heart.

The event, a combination of music and memories, lies somewhere between a wedding reception and a radio dedication show.

The day begins with an informal writing workshop where you can choose a personal song, compose a dedication to a loved one and enjoy a cup of tea and some biscuits.

The workshop will trigger memories and help you find the words to express your feelings and write from the heart to your husband, wife, friend, family member or a loved one you’ve lost.

These dedications and the songs you have chosen will then form the evening performance, which all workshop participants will be invited to. As a guest, you can celebrate love, drink bubbly, listen to the dedications and even join in a dance.

Uninvited Guests and Fuel have been touring the show since 2007.

In 2009 the show was a hit at the Edinburgh Fringe and this has led to high profile presentations at the Southbank Centre in London and with the RSC in Stratford.

The most rewarding performances have been when the company has toured the performance to day centres, village halls and rural communities.

Love Letters is an opportunity for people to hear the song they’ve requested and the words they’ve written about a loved one spoken on their behalf, in a celebratory and moving event.

Love Letters Straight From Your Heart takes place at Tower Mill, Heart of Hawick, on Thursday, October 30.

The workshop runs from 12.30pm-2.30pm, with the evening performance starting at 7pm.

Tickets are £12 (workshop and performance combined, limited to 20 spaces).

For further information or to book your place call the box office on 01450 360688.

The event is being supported by the National Lottery through Creative Scotland and Luminate, Scotland’s creative ageing festival.
