Fairytales For Grown Ups: The Tree of Leaf & Flame

A woman made of flowers....
A stolen child....
A palace of glass....
A ship of seaweed....
A song that stops time....

Spellbinding storytelling and dazzling musicianship come together in this unique retelling of The Mabinogi - the oldest stories of Britain. Haunting and dreamlike, these tales link two worlds: the everyday world we all inhabit, and Annwn, a mysterious Otherworld where nothing is as it seems. This powerful combination of story and live music will transport you to a land of magic and danger.

Daniel Morden is one of the UK's most popular storytellers. He has performed all over the world, from Australia to the Arctic. His passionate, lucid storytelling has been seen at the National Theatre, on Broadway, at many Literature Festivals and in the souks of Marrakech. His book Tree of Leaf and Flame won the Wales Books Council Tir Na Nog Prize in 2013.

Oliver Wilson-Dickson & Dylan Fowler are nationally renowned for their passionate, powerful music. They have toured the UK with groups such as Jamie Smith's Mabon and the Ian Macmillan Orchestra.

The evening cost 10 pounds. You can buy tickets here

    I liked the performance and listened attentively till the end :) It was quite a feat to keep the attention of the audience for the entire story. I thought the music worked well with the story telling. See you all soon.
