Joy Pitt - Storyteller
10th & 11th November – The Story of the Five Travellers by Tales From the Heartwood
What can a Carpenter, a Jeweler, a Wig Maker, a Linen Weaver and a Priest possibly have in common?
Tales From The Heartwood present the “The Five Travellers”, a wonderful performance of interwoven stories.
‘The Five Travellers’ is about two and a half hours of storytelling suitable for adults and children from the age of seven upwards.
Set in a medieval forest, ‘The Five Travellers’ is a set of stories within a story. We follow the story of the priest, wig maker, jeweler, linen weaver and carpenter, as each one tells their own story, building up to an unexpected twist at the end.
Tales From The Heartwood is a small storytelling company, who specialize in Folk Tales and Fairy Tales from around the world. They tell stories in schools, festivals and multi-cultural evenings. With a large repertoire, and a great amount of experience, Tales From The Heartwood present their work with great style and skill.
