Future Work includes:

This coming autumn, festivals beckon: at Romsey Festival, 5-6th October, I’ll be telling Gawain and the Green Knight. This is an ancient tale of Knight-errantry and Magic, Courage and Seduction. It goes back to our Celtic roots and is perfect for a dark evening, especially if mulled wine is to be had.

If you come and hear Gawain at Romsey, I would strongly recommend staying on to hear Katy Cawkwell’s excellent Tristan and Iseult, on the same evening at 7:45pm.

Looking further ahead, I’ll be telling Gawain in December too – on Thurs 12th in Brighton and on Sat 14th Dec in Barnstaple, Devon

In October I’ll be spreading my wings and heading for the Storie In Tasca festival near Lake Maggiore, Italy. I’ll be telling Tales from the Dark and Cold – tales of thieves and monsters; bigamists and shapeshifters; poachers, gamekeepers; and a desperate search for lost love. The festival lasts from 11th-13th October: I’ll be performing on the evening of Friday 11th, at the Exhibition Hall (Sala Mostre) in Besozzo.

And when I get back to London I’ll be joining Alys Torrance, Lucy Lill, Vanessa Woolf, and Lonan Jenkins for a group telling of Jason and the Argonauts, on Friday 18th October.
