Story Telling with Captain Raggy Beard!

There is nothing more valuable than nurturing a love of stories in children to encourage reading, writing and self expression. No one does this better than a good storyteller! And where better to tell stories than around the camp-fire where stories have long been shared between people for as long as humans have existed, connecting people from generation to generation. NOTE: THIS EVENT IS CANCELLED FOR 2020, SORRY This summer get ready for tales of ​pirates, princesses, fairies and mermaids as The Captain takes you on a journey from one world to another full of myth, mystery and magic!

Ever wanted to hear why the mermaid left her tears? OR how the dragon lost his fire? This evening Captain Raggy Beard will retell stories of old and tales of pirates and the sea! This session will include some fun games and activities to take part in for the youngsters but be sure to remember we were all children once, so mums & dads will surely be taken on a journey just as fun! “So come with me where dreams are born and time is never planned. Just think of happy things and your heart will fly on wings…” Peter Pan The Captain is a professional story teller mostly known for educational activities in schools with stories linked with KS1 and KS2 stages of the national curriculum.
