This summer The Canterbury Tales launches a weekly programme of twilight storytelling events. The Campfire Tales will embrace the city’s ancient storytelling traditions; every Friday evening during the Summer Holidays, audiences will gather around a crackling campfire in our Medieval Story Garden where a storyteller will recount tales by the fireside. There is something magic about gathering around a fire to listen to stories and our secluded garden creates the perfect atmosphere for it. We therefore have are pleased to present an adaptation of one of Beedle’s famous tales as featured in Happy Potter, which was inspired by Chaucer’s Pardoners Tale. You’ll hear tales of knights, wizards, witches and obviously also a bit of magic: all of the things you’d expect from a good story. The great thing about these events is that we encourage audience interaction so everyone around the fire will help to shape the stories. No two tales will ever be the same! Anyone over the age of five is welcome. The storytellers will naturally adapt their stories for whoever the audience is. There’s nothing else like it in Canterbury!
Friday evenings throughout Summer Holidays 2019 From 6.30pm until 7.30pm Tickets are £9 per person
