PLEASE NOTE THE CHANGE OF VENUE FOR DECEMBER
Good people, we had a phenomenal night of stories last Tues (12 Nov), Xanthe gave us a wonderful introduction to the Beaver Moon and the honoured Yew. Followed by the storytelling powerhouse who is Nell Phoenix, she had us gripped to every image and event through her exhilarating observations, wit and consummate storytelling. Thank you so much all of you who attended, your warmth as an audience is still with me. Xanthe and I are thrilled to be growing our storytelling community.
And so onwards to the December Full Moon...
December holds the Cold Moon, its tree is the Pine. The Yule Log was traditionally made of pine wood whose sweet scent and bright flame promised the sun's return.
Join Sarah Rundle for: “Gawain and the Green Knight”

Gawain is a classic tale of heroism tinged with absurdity and has at its heart a dysfunctional family, where a wrong done in one generation festers into revenge upon the next. An ancient winter’s tale, perfect for a dark evening….
'Gawain and the Green Knight' storms along with an intelligent irreverence, yet is able to be truly magical when wonder is called for. It sparkles with a particularly glorious English humour:' Ben Haggarty

‘Rundle was exquisite… raising issues around Eurocentric stereotypes…challenging morals and traditional storytelling:' Remote Goat
