Storytelling is one of our oldest forms of communication and artistic expression. From the very beginning stories have been told, adapted and shared. Through the ages storytellers have engaged audiences with sagas, legends, fairy tales, epics and anecdotes. So from Great Uncle Ned’s sharpened thigh bone to the present day there will be a place for those that like to spin a yarn and those that love to listen.

“I write and create my own stories as well as adapting classic folk tales and songs. I travel all over the UK telling stories to children, families, adults and just about anyone who is prepared to listen. I am not always a stick and a stool storyteller, though there is a time and a place for that, I like to leap around, crouch, bend, fall over and stand on my head. Actually that last one seldom happens. I use puppets, props and costume to present my stories, most of which are handmade lending a certain air of fragility as though everything is held together with a thread and a glue gun, which it is, which I love.” – Mark Fraser.

 Tuesday 31st August.

Stories will be told at 11.30am, 2pm, and 4pm.
