Photographer and writer Simon Corble is touring in White Light White Peak, a show based on his book of the same name, tracing a year in the Peak District

Starting in the depths of a snowy winter, both book and live performance are a journey through a White Peak year, including encounters with the weather, wildlife and people; some amusing, some thought-provoking and many involving a springer spaniel or two.

Simon, who lives in Monyash, delivers his poems from memory and in a conversational style, described as more like miniature short stories, complete with twists and some happy endings.

The White Light is all in Simon's monochrome photography: atmospheric landscapes, wildlife shots and enigmatic moments, projected on to a screen.
