Storytelling: for children 4 years or older:

Flights of Fancy – Bird Tales 

(and other flights of fancy)

Rope Store

A flight of fancy is ‘an idea that shows a lot of imagination but is not practical’. And that’s what these tales will be – stories in which birds have the starring role but don’t always show any sense. Expect tales of silliness, and nonsense as well as stories of courage and determination. Join in with Chicken Licken’s doomed journey to the King; help the musicians of Bremen chase away the burglars and hear of the Jingwei bird’s never-ending quest.

This highly interactive story session will be great for anyone aged 4 -10 (and anyone who
can remember what it was like to be that young!)

Sue tells tales. Some are true, many are not but can her audience tell the difference? She has been heard spinning yarns for the past twenty years at lots of Island events, such as Somewhen storytelling festival; Chale Show; Ventnor Fringe and Robin Hill’s Wonder Woods. She likes swimming in the sea, (even in winter), riding her bicycle (slowly) playing treble recorder (with many mistakes) and looking for sea life under rocks at low tide. Her ambition is to cycle the North Coast 500 in Scotland, telling tales as she goes.

Only children attending need a ticket; the accompanying adult does not need a ticket.


Flights of Fancy – Bird Tales Saturday 17 February 11.15
