Come and join us for tea/coffee and cake, followed by a walk around the heart of historic Chester, accompanied by three artists from Adverse Camber who will entertain us with stories and songs along the way.

Some of you may already know Adverse Camber from last year’s Literature Festival when Litfest Friends sponsored their spellbinding show ‘Fire in the North Sky’ about Norse myths and legends, which was a sell out. As part of this year’s Festival they will be performing again, this time their latest show ‘Dreaming the Night Field’, which is based on the traditional Welsh story of the Mabinogion. That evening event will be going on sale in due course on the Storyhouse website as part of the main Festival programme.

This linked Story Walk daytime event is organised by Litfest Friends as part of the Festival Fringe. Tickets include tea/coffee and cake at Bishop Lloyd’s Palace on Watergate Street Row, where we will meet at 1.30pm. The Adverse Camber artists will then introduce us to their work, before we set off for a circular walk down to the river and back, stopping along the way for stories and songs.

Numbers for this event are limited and we anticipate that tickets will sell out quickly, so if you would like to join us don’t delay in booking your place.
