Summary of Event
This is where you describe your event in a couple of short paragraphs. This is the space to outline what you are doing, how it will be done and why people should attend.
When was the last time you sat around a hearth and listened to a good story? Join Arthur Conan Doyle for an evening of storytelling by an open fire.
On the 22nd of May, legendary author, Arthur Conan Doyle will tell some of his best-loved stories. This is the first in a 4-week series of events that offer reconnection with a sacred tradition. Oral storytelling is an ancient art form and one of the most important parts of our culture. Despite this, it’s something we do less and less. ‘Tales From The Hearth’ aims to revive storytelling for the modern age.
Doyle will bring his own words to vivid life. Listen as he fills your imagination with complex characters, tales of suspense and scenes from dark, Victorian cities.
