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:
Sef has been sharing stories for more than twenty five years. Often working with refugees and asylum detainees, he tells in churches, mosques, and synagogues, and has been involved in peace & reconciliation projects internationally. Recent story-sharing, workshop-giving & research has taken him from China to Chile, from South Africa to the West Bank.
“Sef is a master storyteller - wholly connected to his stories and fully engaged with his audience. A rare and wondrous treat for seasoned storytellers and new-to-storytelling crowds alike! Highly recommended.” - Nell Phoenix, StoryNight at Torriano
“Sef Townsend conjured up visions … conveyed in effective and chilling ‘sprechgesang’ .” - The Stage
"Absolutely bizarre but entirely captivating . . . thanks to the supreme detail in his every expression and movement . . . left me open-mouthed and my skin frosty" - The Arbutarian, London
