Pauline Storytelling in the Green Futures Earth Lodge at 2007’s Glastonbury Festival of Performing Arts
2007s Glastonbury Festival of Performing Arts was my first time in the Green Futures Earth House – it was a wonderful experience, despite all the rain and that mud! Link to the Green Futures storytelling tent at Glastonbury – I was also asked to join John Rowe’s merry band of storytellers in the Kidz field and was convinced that this possibly the most fun pastime in the world!
Then more stories were to be had on the 30th June up on the Kincorth Hill (aka the Gramps!) as part of Aberdeen’s Treefest. Thankfully the sun came out and we had a good audience (both human and canine!) for our tree stories.
On Sunday 12th August 2007 GAS Storytellers coudl be found telling stories at the MRI 2007 Harbour Festival in Stonehaven. http://www.maritime-rescue-institute.org/
My next event was on the 16th October where I told fireside tales out on the shores of Loch Kinord at the Muir of Dinnet Nature Reserve. An audience of adults and children were made comfortable on waterproof beanbags and were warmed by a campfire while they heard tales of Battles, Beasts, Myths and Legends of the area. See the Scottish Natural Heritage web page for details! Or see the press release.
On Wednesday 17th October, I was guest storyteller at the Aberdeen University Storytelling Society. I was made very welcome by the members, judged the ABOC storytelling competition and was very impressed with the stories told!
On the 28th October, I could be found guiding a terrified public through the haunted caves at Archaeolink’s Wickerman event while other GAS storytellers were performing up at the round house.
Other Archaeolink events in 2007’s included the Medieval Craft Fair on the 1st April, Cooking Without Gas on the 22nd April, Prehistoric Fashion on the 3rd June, Metal Mayhem on the 16th June, Myths and Legends on the 7th October See Archaeolink’s Web Page for upcoming events. The centre is closed to the public from the end of October (re-opening 1st April 2008) but will be open to schools and corporate events over the winter.
