28th – 29th April – Todmorden Folk Festival commission:
“Tod Festival Folklore Explore: take an adventure in to the park and find an old local tale lost in the woods. Discover a world where you can change yourself into any animal, track the signs of our local witch magic and connect with your natural surroundings. Join us for a guided sound walk with storytelling, music and hidden noises or pick up a map from local outlets and see if you can find the trail on your own. This piece has been created as part of our festival outreach programme working throughout the year with the people of Todmorden. Suggested for ages 5 and upwards”
Making workshop for families on the 28th at Todmorden Town Hall that links with the story we’ll be telling.
