February 11th – Jon Mason tells Chasing the Sun

Journey with Jon as he weaves together traditional tales inspired by the prehistoric White Horse at Uffington, Berkshire. Following stories from Wales to Yorkshire to Iceland and more, we wonder at the traces of left in the soil from centuries past, the hopes and dreams of those people before us, and imagine the ancient myth that might have been.

Jon is a local storyteller and historian, with a deep fascination with the links between legend and the landscape. He performs regularly at festivals, storytelling clubs, schools and events around Sussex, and has staged shows exploring tales from Welsh legend, Norse myth, and more besides.

The first half of the evening will be open so to book a slot to tell a story (ten minutes max) please contact Jamie Crawford:  jnvacrawford@googlemail.com


March 10th – Stories of Love, Lust and Longing

Open Evening

Open Evening: What can we say about this? The title says it all. We want stories about love: romantic, rebellious or lovers reeling with passion. Of lust: leering, lecherous or ludicrous. And of longing: lovelorn, lyrical, liverish, lycanthropic… Anything goes! Above all, have fun with it.

To book a slot to tell a story (ten minutes max) please contact Umi Sinha: umisinha.writing@gmail.com
