As part of INN CROWD’s Lockdown Residencies The Shoulder of Mutton, Strumpshaw partnered with author Mary Hargreaves.  She wrote A Very Important Party as a fictional account of village life.

Publican Bob bought the story to life each week with Facebook Live readings allowing the community to enjoy the story.

Six characters are all facing their own problems. Everything seems impossible when you’re going it alone. But there’s a big party being held at The Shoulder of Mutton – will any of them go and reconnect?  Over seven weeks, each character’s story will be revealed. Watch as the characters weave in and out of each other’s lives, becoming immersed in the stories of their fictional neighbours and discovering that the community of the local pub is very powerful indeed.
