Professional performer Justine de Mierre will run six workshops on Tuesday afternoons in July and August bringing both local legends and international tales to life. Audiences can expect stories including a wildman from Orford, river dragons from China and piratical skulduggery from Italy. She will also perform some ‘extreme storytelling’ where she improvises a brand-new story on the spot from audience suggestions.

Playwright and screenwriter Peppy Barlow and Rosie Walker, Live Interpretation Officer at Gressenhall Farm and Workhouse, will run four workshops at the end of August using old tales and ideas from the audience to craft a new odyssey rooted in the banks, tides and landmarks of the River Deben.

The ten sessions, which are being sponsored by Woodbridge Town Council, Suffolk Cottage Holidays and The Arts Society Woodbridge, will be held in the John Gibbins Gallery at the Longshed with audience numbers of no more than 40 people.

Tickets cost £4.00 for two people.  Ring the WRT ticket line 07596 870150 to reserve or buy tickets online through
