July 9, 2017 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm

Standard ticket £10

We are delighted to bring Ben Haggarty to a new venue for us in The Old Town Hall. Ben is a world class performance story teller whose work delights and subverts audiences across the English speaking world. A master of improvisation, he is internationally respected for his playful, physical and challenging performance of stories inspired by international fairy tales, folk tales, myth and epic, in venues ranging from caves to Carnegie Hall! He tours widely, has been a guest artist in over one hundred International Storytelling Festivals in 25 countries  and was for 10 years the official storyteller with Yo Yo Ma’s Silk Road Ensemble.  Ben is a much sought after teacher and director of storytellers and artistic director of the legendary Crick Crack Club. He is Honorary Professor of Storytelling at the Arts University of Berlin (UDK).

Tonight Ben will perform ‘The Blacksmith at the Bridge of Bones’ – if knowledge equals power then what is the responsibility of such power…….

Thanks to ACEarts for making this venue available to us for this performance.
