Holiday activity

Please see below the information about a Summer workshop

A summer of storytelling in the Longshed

 

Stories of rivers, seas and voyages will captivate audiences at a series of workshops in Woodbridge this summer - from 23 July to 1 September.

Woodbridge Riverside Trust has arranged professional storytellers to run 10 one-hour workshops for families during the school holidays.

Professional performer Justine de Mierre will run six workshops on Tuesday afternoons in July and August bringing both local legends and international tales to life. Audiences can expect stories including a wildman from Orford, river dragons from China and piratical skulduggery from Italy

She will also perform some ‘extreme storytelling’ where she improvises a brand-new story on the spot from audience suggestions.

Playwright and screenwriter Peppy Barlow and Rosie Walker, Live Interpretation Officer at Gressenhall Farm and Workshop, will run four workshops at the end of the holidays using old tales and ideas from the audience to craft a new odyssey rooted in the banks, tides and landmarks of the River Deben.

The sessions, which are being sponsored by Suffolk Cottage Holidays and The Arts Society Woodbridge, will be held in the John Gibbins Gallery at the Longshed with audience numbers of no more than 40 people.

Tickets for two people cost just £4.40 (including booking fee).
