The Programme for 2022

Each year we have a mix of the planned and the spontaneous.  The planned includes a sample of Britain's finest storytellers as well as some family-friendly theatre.  Acts confirmed include:

Xanthe Gresham
Xanthe has agreed to join us at short notice to replace Alys Torrance who has had to pull out.  We're not sure which show she will bring but one thing is certain: it will be playful, provocative and thoroughly riveting.

Gresham is a truly great storyteller who unwraps each story like the petals of a lotus flower

Baden Prince (Jnr)
Baden Prince (Jnr) is a dynamic poet, performer and storyteller who has been a part of London’s thriving Live Literature and Spoken Word scene  since the turn of the century.

Baden’s stories reflect his African-Caribbean heritage. They also reveal his love of language and a warm, engaging sense of humour that appeals to young and old-and all ages in between.



Between 2003 – 2010 he was organiser, promoter and host of “Speakeasy,” one of the most popular and highly-regarded poetry and spoken word events in London.

Baden’s storytelling credits include performances by invitation at Cambridge Folk Festival, Glastonbury and the East Anglia Storytelling Festival - where he has been a featured artist for several years.
