The Storyteller of Suffolk - 4th February

23rd January 2017

The ‘Storyteller of Suffolk’ will be at The National Heritage Centre as part of National Storytelling Week with an afternoon dedicated to storytelling and half price family tickets

National Storytelling Week has been running for the past 17 years and this yearcambridge-bard-credit-matt-widgery for the first time the National Heritage Centre at Palace House will be hosting a story telling day on the 4th February.

Marion Leeper, ‘Storyteller of Suffolk’, will be hosting the sessions; she has been telling stories in and around East Anglia for many years, in museums, libraries, green spaces and even a nuclear bunker and is currently 'Bard of Cambridge'. There is no doubt Marion will set the sound of horses' hooves pounding through the museum as she tells folktales and true stories which will bring the Museum's unique collection to life.

The story telling sessions will take place from 2pm - 4pm in the Alborada Trust Education Centre in the National Heritage Centre. There will be three different stories told (lasting approximately 30 minutes each), each taking inspiration from elements of the world class venue that will appeal to all members of the family from 0-100!

There will be a special offer of  passes on the 4th February to encourage visitors to take part in National Story Telling Week. Booking is not necessary.
