Looking for ways to while away the first Sunday afternoon in October? How about a dreamy afternoon listening to a mix of poetry, storytelling and music about the memories of our renowned local author Alan Garner?
This is a unique opportunity to hear some of Alan’s memoirs of growing up in Cheshire brought to life.
Celebrated as the author of ‘The Weirdstone of Brisingamen’ and 12 other books for children and adults, Alan’s fascinating account of his wartime boyhood in Alderley Edge, and which local yarns and legends inspired his writing, is a wonderful look-back to a bygone rural age.
This afternoon show, from 3pm on Sunday October 6th in St Luke’s Church, Goostrey, celebrates the publication of Goostrey-based Alan Garner’s memoir ‘Where Shall We Run To?’.
It’s a collaboration between storyteller Nick Hennessey and musician and composer John Dipper, with script-development support from Alan’s daughter Elizabeth, a novelist and editor.
Tickets for this special afternoon, entitled ‘Over and Nether, ’are £15, available here.
“The storytelling and music were wonderful, and I found the Q&A very inspirational in getting me thinking about storytelling and place” – Kate Picker Visitor Experience Manager, The National Trust
