This summer we welcome back popular storyteller Giles Abbott for a season of lively family storytelling in the oral tradition. Giles will be exploring the mystery and imagination of Indian fairy tales, beloved by William Morris.

Among others tales, Giles will be telling the story of Rama and Sita, the demon Ravana and Hanuman the Monkey God. Themes include love, revenge, peril and hijinks, and there's a battle, a kidnapping, a banishment and of course a happy ending!
