Telling stories in the lounge

As part of the YARN festival in Bray last evening we told stories in Holland’s fine lounge which developed into a storytelling session with audience members telling stories.
We heard of the mad woman seeking sun in a sieve, four brothers who could not find their missing member, the queen’s cigarettes, Matt Talbot’s wardrobe, the goose woman who declared her own demise, the go-kart rivals, and the tale of the bald men and the beguiling woman.
A great night.

Grimm’s storytelling in Bray

All hail the families of listeners at the telling of Grimm’s folktales in Mermaid Arts Centre, Bray, Co Wicklow, as part of YARN storytelling Festival, on November 10.

We flip flopped along with a frog, made too much sweet porridge, found our way through the woods with Hansel and Grethel, marvelled at the duplicity of Cinderella’s step-sisters, and tried in our minds to imagine Rapunzel’s hair so long that it reached to the ground from a high tower.

And we finished with the tale of Tom Wolf’s adventure in the woods, all with the enthusiastic assistance of the audience. Marvellous.
