About this Event

A special fundraising event for Sting in the Tale, a festival of stories, with international storyteller Dominic Kelly, plus a homage to the great romantic, gothic poets and balladeer storytellers of old with character-led local storyteller Ellie Brooks.

On the road a black dog with flaming eyes hounds night-time travellers. Inside a bottle a flame flickers, delivering wishes with a terrible curse. On a mantelpiece a severed hand burns bright. Beyond the firelight, a fiddle plays by the lakeshore, where a handsome man waits to pull you under the water. In the dark of the forest a beautiful woman seduces men... and hides her hollow back.

Dominic Kelly’s warm, witty and powerful storytelling style has captivated audiences around the world. On this special evening let him guide you through places he’s lived: the Cumbrian fells, the valleys of Scotland, the vast forests of Sweden... But this is a tour with a difference, a tour through the darker stories each place hides...

We begin the evening with ghosts, smugglers, highwaymen and more. All have a part to play when Scivvie the shadow scuttler (Ellie Brooks) brings us a mix of classic tales and new material to whet out appetites for darker things to come ...

Please note that due to the story content this is an adults only event.

With special thanks to Deans Court for use of the venue.
