A small but perfectly formed audience gathered to listen to some traditional stories in Frome Library today. They sat attentively for 40 minutes listening to tales from around the world including stories about: where the first butterflies came from, what a mysterious old man did with a magical pear tree, some of Anansi’s tricks and why a certain king’s ears were so unusual. A lovely session.
Summerlands Storyelling Festival want to raise the profile of storytelling for adults, but that doesn’t mean we want to leave the children out of the fun so we have organised a programme of family events at libraries and bookshops across the region. There is another family session in Frome, this time at Hunting Raven Books in Cheap Street.
