The Magical World of Traditional Tales
Saturday 8th August @ 10:30 am - 11:30 am
Children are invited to listen to traditional tales from Kevin Crossley-Holland. Step into a magical world with this award-winning author in this live event. His Arthur trilogy and two Viking sagas have been awarded the Carnegie Medal and the Guardian Children’s Fiction Prize.
Discover the ice-bright world of Norse mythology, with its nine worlds, rainbow bridge and gods and goddesses, including one-eyed Odin and his son Thor. Be shocked by their struggle for power and amazed by stories of Loki, the trickster.
Travel back in time closer to home. Kevin will share traditional tales and his collection of British folktales — legends and wonder tales, tales of fairy folk and ghost stories, explaining how they were collected in the 19th century. Expect to be shocked, laugh out loud and be inspired to tell a story yourself in just an hour!
