Storytellers Catriona Blanke and Kirsten Milliken explore female archetypes, often diminished and sometimes demonised, in myths, legends and folk and fairy tales worldwide.

However, Plan A needs wisdom, creative play and joy, as well as knowledge and skill. Our collective actions must win hearts and minds for life-giving, regenerative change. This week's topics are an invitation to join that process. A booking fee of £1.25 is charged per transaction for online and phone bookings.
