    Story & Laughter with Donna Washington

    Date: August 26, 2018

    Time: 4:00 pm to 5:30 pm

    Story & Laughter: Storytelling is the reason people invented fire: to stay up late listening to stories. If you believe that, you’ll believe all of our tall tales are true. You’re just our kind of audience. Storytellers bring old tales to life with lively interpretations and new tales to light; some tales come from the moment and some are finally revealed. All are crafted with care for your enjoyment. If you’re bored hearing the same old family stories over dinner again, come and hear some new tales (or, if those tales are so good they should be shared, here is the place to do it). Each month there will be feature tellers and stories as well as an opportunity to share tales yourself (or pick up some ideas to create them). Look out for our different themes. Please be aware that whilst there is no age restriction, generally tales are told by adults for adults, so parental guidance may or may not be required.
