Gather with us for an evening of storytelling

“Watch the wall my darling, while the gentleman ride by . . .”

Ghosts, highwaymen and smugglers abound in this thrilling, chilling, character-led storytelling show collated and performed by Ellie Brooks.

Welcome to the strange, creepy, and oftentimes hilarious world of 18th century peasant girl Scivvie. A born shadow-scuttler, Scivvie does her best to keep out of sight, lest her ears be boxed. But skulking in her secret corners, she sees and hears all that goes on in her small Georgian village, and knows a secret of the right kind is worth its weight in gold.

Orphaned as a child, she has been permitted by the local vicar to ‘look after’ the local church at night time, in return for a place to sleep. She takes her job very seriously, especially with the shadows that lurk among the graves after sundown, that only she seems able to see . . . now you are here, she wonders, would you perhaps like to hear a tale . . . ?

This homage to the great gothic poets of yesteryear and bawdy balladeers of old features classic poems combined with traditional folklore and original material. Poems include The Highwayman by Alfred Noyes, The Listeners by Walter de la Mare, The Smuggler’s Song by Rudyard Kipling and many, many more.

Suitable for 10 years and over. Parental supervision advised.

Support act: Storyteller Peter Courtenay.

Show Duration: 2 hours approx.
