Stony Tracks is a fundraising event for York House held on the second Wednesday of each month. Entry is £5.00 and tickets are available from York House and Odells.
At each show, Derek Gibbons will be in conversation with a local resident about their life, and playing some of their favourite music. (sound familiar?).
This month’s guest is Roy Nevitt.
Roy Nevitt moved to Stony Stratford in 1967, initially to work as a lecturer in Drama, training teachers at North Buckinghamshire College of Education, situated in Bletchley Park. After two years there and three and a half years in the USA, he returned to England and in 1974 was appointed Director of Drama at Stantonbury Campus. He played a key role in building up drama and theatre in the new city, involving students, the community at large and professional theatre practitioners. For 7 years he was Chair of the MK Theatre and Gallery Company, responsible for the Theatre and Gallery, which he also helped to bring into existence.With Roger Kitchen and Maggie Nevitt, he founded the Living Archive and was its Artistic Director for 10 years.
A small bar will open by 7.30pm for the purchase of beers, wines, and soft drinks. Bar proceeds also go to York House.

Background and history
The big difference with the radio show, is not only that it’s in front of an audience, but it will feature photos of the guests life on a big screen.
Each shows lasts approximately and hour, and after a short interval, the floor is thrown open to the audience to ask their own questions.
The first event raised a total of over £300 which will go towards York House's many community and arts events.
