Wymondham and Attleborough talking newspaper celebrates 700th edition

A talking newspaper will mark the 700th edition of its service with a special radio play.

The Wymondham and Attleborough Talking Newspaper play, entitled 'The Anniversary Edition', has been written by chairman Tony Vale and is set to be released next month.

The comedy drama goes behind the scenes of the fictional Riddlestone and District Talking Newspaper as they prepare to record their 20th anniversary edition.

The 25 minute play will be recorded in front of an invited audience of listeners, volunteers and supporters, during a social evening hosted by former ITV regional television newsreader, Clare Weller.

The production will be introduced and back-announced by Clare, in the style of a BBC Radio Four drama presentation and it will be included on the newspaper's 700th edition, which is scheduled for dispatch to the listeners on December 23.

The recording will take place at 7.30pm on November 24 at the United Reformed Church Centre in Wymondham.

The talking newspaper is free to the listener and equipment is supplied to play the memory sticks on which it is recorded. It can also be accessed via the organisation's website at www.watn.org.uk
