Lancashire-based Horse + Bamboo, a company that has specialised in mask and puppet theatre since it was founded in 1978, brings its version of classic fairy tale Red Riding Hood to the Scottish Storytelling Centre for the 2014 Edinburgh Fringe.

Performers Jonny Quick and Nix Wood talk to BTG editor David Chadderton about the production and their involvement with the company.

The production runs at 1PM until 17 August 2014. For more information about this and the company, see www.horseandbamboo.org.

Also in this episode, Philip Fisher talks to legendary cricket broadcasters Henry Blofeld and Peter Baxter about their show Memories of Test Match Special, back by popular demand after a run at last year's Fringe.

They discuss the show, which recalls anecdotes about the sporting radio institution of Test Match Special, as well as their perspectives on the Fringe and on live performance.

Their show runs at the Pleasance Dome at 16:20 until 24 August 2014, and can also be seen at the Lyric Theatre in London on 22 September and selected dates around the country. For more information, see www.henryblofeld.co.uk/tour_dates.html.
