Campfire Stories @ Top Of The Woods
This year we will have Milly Jackdaw & Deb Winter to be our storytellers at Top of the Woods.
"I love storytelling for all these reasons but what drives me most is the desire to inspire wonder in the natural world.
I enjoy exploring how the Welsh landscape, human psyche and folklore all reflect each other and I am inspired by the power of stories to mirror our own journey and help us along the way.
I tell stories for children and adults and have shared tales in a wide variety of settings from theatre stages, schools and cosy campfires to nature reserves, woodlands, and festivals."
"Magic, shapeshifting, the otherworld and the power of nature are themes that bubble-up into my stories.
I'm often to be found on a mossy rock in Tycanol wood or basking like a mermaid on the rocks at Aber Bach as, like Milly, my inspiration comes from nature.
The joys & sorrows, fears & hopes of the human heart are what storytellers share with listeners and laughter. To sit watching the fire and listening to stories is to do what your ancestors have done centuries before.
Around the fire, strangers become friends ......."
