Lovers of the aural storytelling tradition are in for a real treat during this year’s Ashby Arts Festival when nationally acclaimed storyteller, Sophie Snell joins the Folk on the Farm production of Sleet, Shoots and Leaves.
Sophie, a professional storyteller from Derby, has a wide range of stories for both children and adults at her command. Her ghostly tales, often related amongst the creeping corners of desolate Abbeys and the shadowed crannies of crook beamed pubs are guaranteed to make even the staunchest sceptic shiver!
Sleet, Shoots and Leaves is a brand new show specifically written for the 2010 Ashby Art Festival. Based on Sue Kendrick and Lois Crofton’s poetry and photographic anthology, it features the stories, songs and poems of the National Forest. Set against a stunning back drop of a photographic, multimedia show depicting the wonderfully varied and moodily evocative landscape of the National Forest the show presents the small corner of the Forest around the town as never seen before!
Sleet, Shoots and Leaves is one of the premier Arts Festival events and takes place on Friday, 28th May, 7.30 p.m. at the Lyric Rooms, Ashby de la Zouch. Tickets are £6 available from Sue Kendrick
