This event is in the past. This is an archive page for reference.

A double bill of stories about magical children told by two of the world's finest storytellers, Jan Blake and Daniel Morden, with accompanying musicians.

The Luck Child is born with a mark on his forehead and a magical destiny, but an evil king will stop at nothing to have his head. This classic Brothers Grimm tale is full of strange encounters, sudden jumps and dramatic twists. Storyteller Daniel Morden and violinist Oli Wilson-Dickson blend music, sound, song and spoken word to create a magical world.

Snake Magic is a story of a jealous brother and a wronged sister. International storyteller Jan Blake and master musician Kouame Sereba give an energetic and lyrical performance of this enchanting story of revenge and redemption. A tale of one girl's courageous battle to live the happy life promised to her, despite a cruel betrayal.
