Storyteller Eric Farquhar brings to life projected pictures showing the development of Wick from 1850 to 1970, as it became the largest herring port in the world. Expect yarns about houses of pleasure, gambling and drinking dens, a Gold Rush and Robert Louis Stevenson! Then Cultural Crofter Nancy Nicolson re-creates the hilarious true story of three Caithness crofters in prohibition era Wick; illicit whisky-makers who outwitted the authorities over 15 years. The peat fire is roarin up the lum, so come on in!
