IronFest

to Apr 28

IronFest

In a land far, far away, there was a Kingdom hidden deep within a lush valley where a fire breathing dragon turned the very rock to molten steel. 
It was here, at the centre of the dragon's lair, that the clans would gather each year at the changing of the season when the leaves streamed red and gold from the trees, and the breeze scattered their richness across the land.

This magical valley was called The Kingdom of Ironfest.

Tales Told Live: Accreditation and Open Mic.

Tales Told Live in March will feature several Storytellers NSW Members who will be telling stories before the audience and the accreditation panel. If you’d like to know more about the accreditation process click here. There will also be some open spots available- perfect for emerging storytellers to gain experience and to be seen by the accreditation panel.

Tales Told Live is an eclectic mix of stories, music, and spoken word presented the second Sunday of every second month (sort of) by Storytellers NSW at The Friend in Hand Pub in Glebe, 2pm-4pm. Personal stories, folk tales, tall tales, oral history, original stories, ballads. Interested in performing? Let us know! christinegreenough@bigpond.com

For us at Storytellers NSW, stories are told, rather than read aloud or shown on a screen Storytelling is what happens when a story is told, face to face, eye to eye, mind to mind, heart to heart. The story is intimately known by the teller, spoken aloud, and shared, like a gift, with the audience. Known as the narrative oral tradition, storytelling is our first literacy. We invite you to join us and experience this oldest and living art form
