WINTER FAIRY TALES
EVENT: WINTER FAIRY TALES
DATE: 22nd December 2020
TIME: 4:00 - 5:00pm
FEATURING: Sally Pomme Clayton
Sit under your Christmas tree, put on the fairy lights, drink a cup of hot chocolate, and join a snowy ride through the fairy-tale forest! Have your favourite Christmas decoration beside you, ready to show everyone at the end.
Writer and performer Sally Pomme Clayton takes you on an enchanted journey. Meet Snegerotchka, maiden of the snow, and find out how she helps Old Father Frost deliver Christmas presents. Join two bold sisters, Snow White and Rose Red, as they trick a greedy troll and set the bear King free. Shelter from the snow in a mysterious hut, as invisible hands spread a winter feast. Who really lives here?
These snowy stories come from Russia, Germany and Scandinavia, and will fill you with the magic of Christmas! Sally Pomme is a wonderful storyteller who weaves spells with words, sounds, songs and special objects. The performance is aimed at children and families, but everyone is welcome. It will be held via Zoom and will last about 45 minutes, and at the end we would love you to show us your favourite Christmas decoration and tell us a little bit about it!
