Raising the Light

ON TUESDAY FEBRUARY 8th

Jan 2022

January was named for the Roman god Janus, protector of gates and doorways, deity of beginnings and endings. Janus is depicted with two faces, one looking back, the other with the ability to see what is to come. January is a month of gradually increasing daylight and new year’s resolutions, broken or otherwise!So, we invite stories of prophecy and two-facedness, past and future, hope and challenge, dark and light! As always, if you have a story you are burning to tell, do come and tell it, whether it fits the theme or not! Or just come, sit back, relax and be enchanted, because we need listeners too.

To book a slot (ten minutes max) please email Anne-Marie: amhbrighton@gmail.com

No booking required. Tickets £5 on the door.
The cafe will be serving tea, coffee, soft drinks and cake.

7.30pm – Hillcrest Centre, Bay Vue Road, Newhaven BN9 9LH

March 8th – Frolicsome Tales

Bring a story with a spring in its step… a tale of laughter, a tale of love, or maybe the tale      of a frolic that went horribly wrong!  And March 8 is International Women’s Day so we also invite stories of goddesses and strong women. As always, if you have a story you are       burning to tell, do come and tell it, whether it fits the theme or not! Or just come, sit back,    relax and be enchanted, because we need listeners too.  To book a slot (ten minutes max) please email Wendy: wendyatkinson.name@gmail.com

April 12th – Women and Power: told by professional storyteller Marion Leeper with songs by Jessica Law

Stories based on the Italian romance Orlando Furioso, 500 years old, but as edgy and modern as if it was written this morning. A mixture of knock-about comedy and heart-    breaking tragedy, it covers subjects that were important to the court ladies of sixteenth   century Ferrara: terrorism, immigration, weapons of mass destruction, and the perfect recipe for fish pie. But underneath the mad adventure and throwaway humour it raises questions about the ways women can and should wield power.

 

At the Hillcrest Centre, Newhaven BN9 9LH.
