We are delighted to announce ‘Persephone and the Rites of Spring’ on April 3 at 4pm! Celebrate spring with mysterious myths and fragments of folklore. Join writer and performer Sally Pomme Clayton for magical stories about spring. Hunt for where the Easter bunny lives. Wonder which came first, the creation myth or the egg? And follow Persephone on a dark and dangerous journey to the underworld. Find out why her mother, Goddess Demeter, curses Earth so nothing grows, how Persephone returns, and why the cycle of nature and seasons depend on Persephone's journey.
"One of the country's most highly regarded storytellers...she awakens the imagination of the audience." The Independent.
These stories come from ancient Greece, Asia and Scandinavia, they are poetic and dramatic and will fill you with the hope of spring! Sally-Pomme is a wonderful storyteller who weaves spells with words, sounds, songs and special objects. The performance is aimed at children aged 6 and over and their families, but everyone is welcome. It will be held via zoom and will last about 45 minutes, and at the end we would love you to show us your spring decoration - paint an egg, make a flower crown, decorate an Easter bonnet - and tell us a little bit about it! Welcome in the spring with these beautiful stories.
