Friday 1 February
at Swindon Central Library
7pm. Stories unite us. Their common themes where ever they originate in the world lay bare all the strengths and frailties of the human race. They are what we tell our children and each other at home, around fires, in the pub or sitting on a park bench. This year Swindon Central Library to celebrate National Storytelling week, invites you not only to listen to three renowned storytellers, John Row, Kirsty Hartsiotis and Baden Prince, but to tell your own stories whether they be traditional or anecdotal.
