Published Thursday, 29th October 2015

Bishop Wood Centre, Stourport are welcoming residents to enjoy a celebratory feast of facts, folklore, strange superstitions, old stories, mythology, poems and songs, all on the theme of British Trees

Performed in the enchanting, sylvan atmosphere of a darkened hall festooned with green fairy lights, against a slideshow of gorgeous woodland images by the acclaimed photographer and forester Phil Hinton, this is an immersive and wonderful evening of entertainment.

Cat Weatherill is a feisty storyteller and engaging performer who has many years of experience performing across the UK, Europe and further afield. She uses her fiery energy and theatrical style to tell uplifting short stories.

John Rhymer, Secretary of Friends of Bishops Wood said: “We are very lucky to be part of the Shindig Rural Arts Scheme which enables us to host such first class events. The show is suitable for adults and children from 11 years upwards. It will appeal to all who love trees, going outdoors, photography or great storytelling.”

Tickets £10. Concessions (under 16, OAPs and members of FOBW £8)
