Do you have the gift of the gab?

Liverpool Irish Festival are looking for new storytellers, as part of their  ‘Discovering the Liverpool Irish’ project, who are keen to discover more about traditional Irish storytelling. Using traditional Irish stories, you will take part in a series of professionally led workshops, learning more about Irish history and traditional culture along the way. You will hone your storytelling skills and will have the opportunity to take part in the ‘Mouth of the Mersey’ storytelling event at the end of August.

It is then planned that you will also share your stories with school children, during a series of school visits in the Autumn Term. Dates: approximately 6 workshop sessions, from now until the end of August. There will be a total of approximately 8 school visits, from 5th September up until half-term (24th October) – although you would only be required for 2 of these visits.

You would also be part of the Celebration Event on Saturday 29th October.

No previous experience necessary! Just an active interest in Irish traditions and culture, and an ear for a good yarn! And by the way, this is all absolutely FREE!

If you would like to take part or find out more information please contact Rebecca Sharp at rjoysharp@hotmail.com or Cathy Butterworth at cathyliverpoolirishfestival@yahoo.co.uk Tel: 07949 025 884.
