Tales from the Odyssey, with storyteller Wendy Shearer

 

Listen to magnificent tales of the Greek Hero Odysseus as he battles with beasts and witches in an effort to get back home.  Wendy Shearer, one of London’s most captivating and sought-after storytellers, invites you to join her in bringing the ancient gods and goddess to life as she weaves her storytelling magic for all to hear. Wendy will lead the group out onto the lawns of the Old Royal Naval College to hold this story time session in the sunshine (don’t worry, we do also have a wet weather venue just in case!).

 

Wendy says: “Sharing stories and folklore is a wonderful way to connect communities and generations. Through Story Boat I bring tales that have sailed around the world through our ancestors and breathe new life into them. I love making people shriek, smile and guffaw with laughter, gasp in horror or shed a tear.  Young and old are taken on a journey through my storytelling using timeless props, music and illustrations. Everyone is encouraged to join in aspects of the tale as they become familiar with the characters and verses.”

 

Age: 6+

All attendees, both adults and children, are required to have purchased a ticket under the general admission category. All children should be accompanied by an adult.
