Spooky Tales with Pauline Cordiner and Derek Jennings
The Book of Deer, possibly Scotland’s oldest surviving manuscript – is returning to the North East of Scotland for the first time in over 1000 years.
The book itself will be exhibited at Aberdeen Art Gallery but the Book of Deer Project, who have been campaigning for many years to have the illuminated manuscript visit the area, have many events running in the North East this year – many focussing around Aden Country Park and Deer Abbey where an archaeological dig will be carried out.
I’m chuffed to be doing a total of 6 sessions (3 on the 7th April and 3 on the 11th June) for families incorporating storytelling and living history – but I’m also going to be doing two adults only evening storytelling sessions with Derek Jennings from the Book of Deer Project. You can get your tickets for the first evening session on Eventbrite (details below)
“Join Derek Jennings and Pauline Cordiner for an adults-only evening of scary stories from Aden and the North East of Scotland. Expect ghostly tales of the Monks of Aden, the cursed families of Buchan and the canny chiel who summoned Auld Nick himself!”
