or Hallowe'en in the North
A Radio-Study in Superstition and Folklore by D. G. BRIDSON
In which is included a relay of the Comberbach Soul-Caking Play from
Frandley House, Cheshire
The festival of Hallowe'en, or All Saints' Eve, has its origins in pagan antiquity. Learned Professors could fill volumes explaining just how and why the legend of Baldur the Beautiful was put forward by the Norsemen to justify the existence of their winter Fire Festival, and how in course of time this
Festival came to be adapted, with modifications, by Christendom. But this evening a young Manchester poet and dramatist, D. G. Bridson , who makes no pretensions to specialised learning, is to dispose of the subject in the space of forty-five minutes. This feature programme is appropriately called ' Nutcrack Night' (have you never laid chestnuts on the hearth and speculated on your marital career ?) Narration, readings of poetry and prose, music, dramatic episodes, and a relay from Frandley House, Cheshire, of the Comberbach Soul Cakers' annual play -in this way will Halloween go ' on the air'.
