Stories of rivers, seas and voyages will captivate audiences at a series of workshops in Woodbridge this summer.
Woodbridge Riverside Trust has arranged professional storytellers to run 10 one-hour workshops for families during the school holidays.
Professional performer Justine de Mierre will run six workshops on Tuesday afternoons in July and August bringing both local legends and international tales to life. Audiences can expect stories including a wildman from Orford, river dragons from China and piratical skulduggery from Italy
She will also perform some ‘extreme storytelling’ where she improvises a brand-new story on the spot from audience suggestions.
Playwright and screenwriter Peppy Barlow and Rosie Walker, live interpretation officer at Gressenhall Farm Museum of Norfolk Life, will run four workshops at the end of August ranging from stories about the River Deben to the Odyssey and brand new tales.
The sessions, which are being sponsored by Suffolk Cottage Holidays and The Arts Society Woodbridge, will be held in the John Gibbins Gallery at the Longshed with audience numbers of no more than 40 people.
Tickets will cost no more than £3 with dates and times to be confirmed.
