Spring stories

Stories for the beginning of summer
the lodge at Beacon Hill

Over Beltane weekend, I'm doing two sets of storytelling to welcome the changing season

These will have a distinctly magical feel and might include tales of old Ireland and from the mountains and glens of Scotland. Then again, they might not.  There will, however, almost certainly be boggarts and beasties and probably some gurt hairy lumps and certainly a few flowers and quite possibly a tale out of the deep midwinters of long ago - just so we don't forget the snow that has been and that will roll around again!

6.45pm: food available and  drinks, etc
7.30 - 10: stories start (with a break) through to 10pm

Tickets cost £7 from Greenway Cafe, Snitterton Road, Matlock or call 01629 580023

Storytelling Cafe is in the Imperial Rooms, Matlock, DE4 3NL

Sunday 5th May: Beacon Hill Country Park, Leicestershire
Join myself and the Beacon Hill team for a lively Beltane day. The event is free (car parkingcharges apply)   and will include stories in the big lodge (it's beautiful - come along just for the tipi if nothing else!), music and games. Usually there is a delightfully wild Morris side and often maypole dancing (and often that is improvised, too!). Bring a picnic and make a day of it - and when you can't take the merriment any more, walk up to the top of the Beacon Hill  - the second highest point in Leicestershire and made up of some of the oldest rocks in England

morris with lots of shouting!
