Once upon a time, when it was long, long ago, there was a good king in Capadocia, and he had a little daughter, Sabra, and he loved her a lot because Sabra was sweet, intelligent and kind.
But one day a terrible dragon came to his kingdom! It was really big, he breathed fire and he was always hungry.
Well, let’s quell that hunger with a St George’s Day Feast revelling in tales and music! Once again Martin Maudsley, captivating fiddler Fiona Barrow & Cellist Ailsa Mair Hughes are confirmed to tell Dragon tales and invite magical music between four courses of an English inspired Full Feast Menu.
Food, tales, suspense, St George blessing, music & laughter.
-With a bit o’ beer obviously.
“Martin Maudsley’s storytelling is masterful – engaging, witty and suitably scary.”
Anyone who was fortunate enough to catch Martin & Fiona’s rendition of Peter and the Wolf at the Tobacco Factory Theatre, or has had the chance to eat lovingly crafted food and be immersed in story at the enchanting St Werburghs City Farm Cafe Tasty Tales will no doubt share in our excitement too. The response to this years Wassail hosted by Martin was exceptional. We all had such a laugh blessing the orchard, many a comedy moment indeed.
Ailsa Mair Hughes is an innovative cellist, singer, composer and improviser. Ailsa is passionate about using music as a way of connecting people with each other and with nature, so she’ll fit right in here. Not to be missed.
Martin will be accompanied by Fiona on Friday and by Alisa on Saturday night. Each pair will host our Tasty St George Tales evening then guide us into the garden to see off any persistent Dragons…
