Why manic? It’s going to be so busy!
With May fast approaching, I’m having a look at my calendar and getting organised for the month ahead.
On the 30th of April and the 1st of May, two of our wonderful Rhynie Wifies, my Wee Imp and myself will be joining Historic Saltire at Spynie Palace for their annual Medieval Weekend. Visitors will be able to “Hear about Robert the Bruce’s campaign in the north and wander through the living history camp to experience what life was like in medieval times.”
On the 10th May I’m going to be back telling stories at HANDSS. HANDSS is an Aberdeen/shire crafts & activities club for children aged 5 to 15 years, who receive support for learning, or have additional support needs. My Wee Imp and I always love going there – it’s so much fun and we are always made to feel so welcome!
On the 15th May you’ll find me at Gordon Castle Highland Games and Country Fair where I’ll be telling a few Scottish tales near the Tower and appearing on the Moray’s Got Talent Stage.
Then the following week, I’ll be doing the third of three beginners storytelling workshops for the Grampian Association of Storytellers. The theme of my workshop will be “Pacing Your Story” and you can book your place on the workshop by emailing email@example.com
And finally, the Rhynie Wifies and I will be taking part in the annual Fisherfolk Festival in Ballintore. I’m storytelling for schools, at concerts and at St Mary’s Chapel – both as a fishwife and as a Pict! And the Wifies will be demonstrating Pictish life. Watch this space for the event poster!
So a Manic May is fast approaching. (And after that? a Jubilant June followed by Jumping July!)
