We’ve been out and about in and around Bath, telling tales in the sunshine at Prior Park – with Foraged Fictions – and by candlelight at the Frome Festival – with Tales for a Tin Tabernacle (thank you to Mark Rutterford and Julie Green for joining us at the Tin Church). Foraged Fictions went down a storm – we got 5* from Theatre Bath, with a lovely review: “..a unique experience that echoes in the memory for long afterwards.” Some audience comments include saying the evenings were ‘beautiful’ and ‘atmospheric’, ‘fabulous stories in fabulous surroundings’! We’ve really enjoyed ourselves, and loved meeting all our audiences. Thank you to everyone for coming! And now, to Edinburgh…!!
