Orford Lighthouse

Many sea shanties and folk songs focus on loss. Zoe Dixon’s Orford Lighthouse, with text by Anthony Horowitz, is no different except that here the object of loss is being replaced by a Sat-Nav! Kids and audiences love this 2-part canon which was written by Zoe when she was just a teenager!
