Listen to traditional Norwegian folktales of fantastic foxes, greedy giants, wonderful witches and terrible trolls with storyteller Olivia Armstrong
Roald Dahl’s mother told similar tales to him as a boy, which may have inspired his magical stories. Find out how they could inspire you too by discovering new ways of story-making. Why not make a salad with words, write a giant-sized story and perform it with your family? Be a word wizard and join in the fun.
