Story Night

Wed 10th September, The Battle of the Trees / Cad Goddeu A storm rages; a child is born; an ancient secret uncovered. Somewhere, an army of trees begin to march…Christine Cooper tells a twisted web of tangled stories, with the mysterious Welsh poem that inspired Tolkein and Shakespeare at its centre. The loss of millions of trees in the 1987 storm, an archaeological dig on a remote beach, the poet Robert Graves in a frenzy of inspiration, and Christine’s own family story are drawn together through moments of startling coincidence. The crime of the warrior chief Amaethon echoes down the centuries, and a voice speaks the words: I am Taliesin.

8th October Cuchulain and The Crow Queen told by Kate Corkery, Xanthe Gresham and June Peters
