Storytelling for Grown-ups

Tea and Tales

Professional oral storytellers Hannah Brailsford and Peter Optical invite you to listen and engage with folk tales, fairy stories, wonder tales and myths both from our own shores and around the world, whilst enjoying a cup of tea/coffee and a slice of cake.

Stories exist all around us and in each of us, and storytelling is used in all art forms, but the most ancient of these is traditional oral storytelling. It is said in storytelling circles that an oral storyteller speaks 'eye to eye, mind to mind and heart to heart', no script, no props, no cameras, no books or paper. Just a listener, a comfortable seat and the magic of 'Once Upon a Time...’

So join us on the first Wednesday of every month* at the Palace Theatre from 2:30 – 3:30pm. Entry includes a cup of standard tea or instant coffee. Cake and speciality hot drinks may be purchased in line with current prices.

Entry: £2
