Please note that the Week of Storytelling is not being offered in 2021. Other courses courses are available – please go to the menu for more information.

Every year we host evening performances at the Bleddfa Week of Storytelling, most of which are open to the public, featuring course participants, tutors and occasionally stories from the floor. Admission to all performances is included in the course fee for participants but there is a charge for members of the public.

Tuesday 18th of August – Stories of Welcome

An informal session of welcome for course participants with resident tutors Michael Harvey and Hazel Bradley. Not open to the public.

Wednesday 19th of August – Universe, performed by Clare Murphy

A mathematician finds a gift from a god. Blacksmiths beat out the music of the spheres. And why are there turtles everywhere?   Where does myth meet science? Is it only in the middle of the night when we half wake and half sleep? In this timeless place of wonder and insight, time stretches and a fissure opens that builds a dream bridge between many worlds…   Performance storyteller Clare Murphy dances into this liminal space, merging myth, deities, science and a hefty amount of turtle, in a playful exploration of the beginnings of the universe.

Thursday 20th of August -How to Tell a True Friend, performed by Steve Killick

Steve’s style is funny and thought provoking and this show features a story from Sicily telling of how the greatest of friendships can form on the smallest of things.
