Summer stories

Tales of wild creatures and adventurous children!

Wednesday 29th August 2018

Carsington Water, Derbyshire

 

There are adventures everywhere and stories waiting to be told, tales waiting to be heard. In the wind whispering through the leaves, in the shadows under the bench, in the sudden splash of something in a pond.

 

Join artist and storyteller Gordon MacLellan for tales of brave hedgehogs and naughty rabbits, fierce mice and reckless beetles. We will tell a tale or two and then create our own, making brand new stories for ourselves out of leaves and weather and whatever we find

 

There will be short sessions through the day, so come along and join in, listen, laugh and create your own tales of excitement, adventure or maybe terror
