This coming weekend, I will be performing a set of Halloween stories for children and families at Marks Tey Hall, Essex, ( I wont be looking quite so spooky) in the late afternoon as dusk sets in. And then later in the evening I will be performing a set of stories for adults, in the dark, (where I will be looking as spooky as the photo) in a wood by the camp fire again. Then on Sunday, I will be telling Halloween stories in the afternoon in Chelmsford Town Centre, in a pop up art shop, (in collaboration with The Ideas Hub) where children can also create Halloween art and crafts work. Then on Sunday evening there will be the return (hoorah) of Chelmsford Storytelling Club, at The Two Brewers pub, I am so looking forward to the lovely audience coming back and the return of several of my storytelling colleagues, where we will be sharing more Halloween stories.
October has been a very busy period for me. I have already told a story for the Armstrong Storytelling Trust of Northern Ireland; also at Tipi Woods for families, around a camp fire at night; I have been on the World Storytelling Cafe, sharing a spooky tale; I then recorded a Halloween story for Chelmsford Community Radio. I have also shared ‘Autumn Tales’ with Chelmsford City Mencap group. Finally this week I ran three storytelling sessions for Big Hat Bushcamp in Surrey………My broom has had a lot of use, just as well that I have a story about how to get another one.
