From One Moment in Time Storytelling Join storyteller Bronia Evers as she conjures a world of magic, mayhem and moonlit adventures. 

Based on the captivating collection of modern fairytales by classic children’s author Joan Aiken, Bronia will take you on a journey from the snow covered landscapes of the north to the fiery deserts of the east, encountering brave children, talking camels and one extremely lazy wizard. With a necklace of raindrops that keeps its owner dry in the heaviest rainstorm; a house that stands on one leg and a granny who sews magic into every stitch, these spell-binding stories, accompanied by a crankie theatre, will delight all ages. 

This is an outdoor event, please bring rugs, cushions or small chairs to sit on.
