Newport Folk Festival: Storytelling 1st July

Workshop: Telling Folk Tales 

 
Before TV, folks gathered to share stories and sing. Learn how to tell a traditional story with a twinkle in your eye. Facilitated by Kate Lawrence and Durgah Devi Palanisamy (Dee) from Storytelling Australia Vic. These two will have you telling tales before you can say 'Once upon a time..'

WHEN: Saturday, July 1 at 11:30 AM - 1 PM 
WHERE: Newport Substation: 1 Market Street Newport (BIG red brick building next to station)

Later in the evening, you can bring your story to Stories by the Fire and share them by the hearth.

Open Floor: Stories by the Fire

Following your workshop (although this is not a prerequisite), come along to  STORIES BY THE FIRE  Kate and Dee will be there to welcome and to encourage you to share your story. 

Come and listen or put your name on the board and share a tale: all genres of story welcome - 8 minutes or less.

Warm your toes by the fire at this open-hearted event. Soup, cake and chai will be served!


You can purchase a weekend or daily ticket to the Folk Festival and this will get you into STORIES BY THE FIRE  and TELLING FOLK TALES and anything else that takes your fancy. Check out the full Festival program, there is much to enjoy.
