What an awesome three days of storytelling outdoors at Norwich Puppet Theatre, based in a disused church. Storytelling specifically with men who attend mens groups in Norwich. The storytelling performances called ‘Fire in The East’, were run specifically to get men outdoors more, post covid and to inprove their emotional, physical and mental health and welfare through the medium of storytelling outdoors. Working collaboratively with fellow storyteller and friend Jonathan Lambert. We told a range of folk and fairie stories, from the funny, to the serious, to the bizarre and much inbetween. The stories led to some wonderful conversations and sharings of experience and emotions, during the intervals and afterwards.
