Candlelit Story Telling in the cemetery with Giles Abbott - the UK's only professional blind storyteller
Sunday 5th June from 7:00 pm

A chance to hear these classic stories as you've never heard them before - in a graveyard. As dusk falls in Brompton cemetery the gatekeeper will guide you down a lantern lit path, picking your way through the tombstones until you reach the chapel. Find a pew by candlelight, fortify your spirits with a complimentary glass of Hendrick's gin and listen to GILES ABBOTT performing a selection of tales of the occult including Goethe’s Faust and the Sorcerer’s Apprentice.

Tickets £10 including a Hendrick's Gin Cocktail. Please click here to buy.

Giles Abbott started storytelling in 1999 in response to sudden, but not total, sight loss. Since then he has become an award-winning storyteller who just happens to be the UK’s only professional blind storyteller.

His repertoire includes Iron-Age myth from British and Norse traditions, Greek myths and folk tales from around the world.

Giles also works with both children and adults using storytelling to promote confidence, increase literacy and inspire a love of words.
