An Unforgettable
Evening of Story

SEPTEMBER 2022 @ 19:00

Kestrel Morton is a storyteller currently living in South Wales. Telling as often in forests, caves, abandoned buildings and quarries, as in traditional venues, Kestrel's voice carries with it the echoes of the wild edges where the lines between the real and the mythic are blurred and the otherworld overlaps with this one.

This will be a night of true enchantment; a weird, wonderful weaving of old and new stories, all deeply essential for our times.



Kestrel is a dynamic and passionate performer

with a unique vision. A must-see!

THE STORIES: Tales from the Mountain of the Sun

A three-faced god and a golden feather, a whispering serpent and a monk's pilgrimage, a sheep stealer, a hooligan and a change of heart, all watched over by old Granny Chaos. Kestrel Morton weaves a stitch-tongued thread of language, enchanting all who hear it to undertake a fantastical journey into creation myths and wonder tales, through parables and into true stories that bring the gifts of magic out from the otherworld and into our own lives.

FOOD & DRINK: Interval refreshments

The evening's story cycles will be split into two parts with a half-hour interval between for a full interval. Your ticket includes a selection of light food options, plus hot & cold drinks.

Once the stories are over, there will be time for a Q&A with Kestrel in the Watchtower – as well as time to relax and explore Talliston's many rooms, each one a story in themselves.
