A new festival based at Wild goose rural training centre which provides opportunities for people with additional needs. The festival was curated by Iain Craigan of Puppet Tree 

There was a small selection of great storytellers : Nicola Grove & Suzy DJ from Open Storytellers, Barnaby Hiles, Barry Walmsley and  Iain Craigan. I was delighted to be amongst them

Stories were told in tiny tents and polly tunnels by Lilly pads and Bedouin pads. A glorious summery sunny day of telling:

10 minute tales

45 minute performance story telling show . Where I gave Roots and Seeds it’s first public outing since it underwent development as part of a Secret City project funded by BCC Next Generation.

A story walk inspired by the grounds.

An elemental story slam

The feedback for this new and fledgling festival was wholly positive with the main suggestion being that it went on longer ! I guess we will have to wait for another year.
