Telling Tales

Family event - Telling Tales

For more information

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.

Free | Drop-in | Suitable for ages 5 - 11

Olivia Armstrong has been weaving wonders with words and telling tales for over 10 years.

Drop in places are limited to 40 people per workshop and allocated on a first come, first served basis. This event also takes place at 14.00.

Did you know it is Roald Dahl’s 100th birthday? This workshop is inspired by our exhibition Quentin Blake: The Roald Dahl Centenary Portraits, to mark this phizz-whizzing anniversary.
