Benlunar: a fantasy fiction podcast for all ages. Inspired by books such as His Dark Materials and Harry Potter, Benlunar releases a new and exciting chapter every week.
Written and read by award-winning theatre maker Simon Maeder, with music by Tom Figgins, it is their hope that parents and children - or any fantasy fans(!!) - can listen together and share in an atmospheric audio adventure.
The voice and the sound - tick!
