The perfect way to end – or start – your day! Tonight's spooky storytellers are Jan Blake (England), Peter Chand (England) and Laura Simms (USA), hosted by Jess Smith (Scotland).Each storyteller will share a story around the theme of Hallowe'en, as well as one of their favourite tales from their country or culture. This event is also part of Signal Fires, a series of theatrical events at locations across the UK in celebration of our fundamental need to tell stories. In October and November, fires will light up across the UK with storytellers and audiences sharing in one of the original forms of theatre.
