Martin Maudsley presents Arabian Nights

Bridport-based storyteller Martin Maudsley returns to the Story Café on a flying carpet of stories from North Africa and the Middle East. Enthused by trips to Morocco and Turkey and inspired by the rich folklore and storytelling traditions of Arab and Persian culture, Martin weaves together a colourful tapestry of tales from ‘1001 Nights’ and beyond…
An intoxicating evening of stories from long ago and far away that speak strongly to the here and now, infused with the playful wisdom, earthy humour and vibrant imagery of Eastern imaginations.

The Story Café is suitable for adults and older children

PLEASE NOTE: This Story Cafe has been relocated to the Theatre  and will have a cabaret type layout, transforming the space into an intimate setting well suited to Storytelling.
