The East Anglian Storytelling Festival - 17 -19 May

The East Anglian Storytelling Festival - 17 -19 May

If you enjoy stories, come along to the East Anglian Storytelling Festival in May at the Food Museum in Stowmarket. A weekend of stories and storytelling for everyone in the East of England
Thrilling tales for all the family, music, workshops, adventures, and the wide open spaces of the wonderful Museum to explore – ancient buildings, baby animals and giant machines.

Performers including Shonaleigh Cumbers, Amy Douglas, John Row and Taffy Thomas MBE

Tickets available now!

Traditional stories, told mouth to mouth, heart to heart, have been around for a long time: but today’s storytellers are bringing this ancient tradition right into the 21st century, with stories that are demanding to be heard right now and not just by children!

Today’s stories can be riotous laugh-out-loud fun. They can have a cutting edge, and be a subversive way to challenge authority; a chance to give a voice to people who don’t often get to have their say: and a journey that takes grown people to new worlds they never expected.

For children, there will be magical puppet shows from Grethe Mangala Jensen, the chance to create your own future with the recycled magic of the Imaginarium workshop, and a chance to get stuck into books and book activities and games with Erin Hamilton of Suffolk libraries. As well as family storytelling shows all day, children will have a chance to stand on stage themselves at the children’s Spoken Word event: explore a virtual story hidden in the wild spaces of the Museum from Sarah Lloyd Winder: and of course the 88 acres of the Museum to explore, along with shire horses and other animals including some very talkative donkeys.
Young Person’s Festival pass – £10, Adult tickets from £20, Family tickets from £55, All Weekend Ticket - £90.

Camping/campervans – £60.
