Steyning Stones and Naughty Knuckers - Tall Tales and Selig

Tuesday 29th May
14:00 - 15:00

Doors Open: 13:45
Artist: Michael O'Leary, Storyteller
Venue: Festival Big Top
Adult Ticket: £7.50
Under 18s Ticket: £7.50
With the aid of pipes and flutes and who knows what, Mike will tell stories about some of the creatures that lurk within the Sussex stories. There will be water born dragons called knuckers, poisoned pies, silly sausages, and maybe a wibbly-wobbly mermaid. Mike is the author of several books, folk tales for adults and for children, but to him telling the stories is more important than writing them, and the audience plays an important part in the evolution of the tale. “Selig”, by the way, is an old Sussex word for “silly”, but it also means “blessed”.

Suitable for children 7 - 11 yrs. Adults must pay for a ticket.
