Medieval Storytelling at Corfe

We're so enjoying meddling with Medieval Dorset and the close links with Normandie. Working Colin Phillimore (le Jongleur) and writer/deviser Alice Flynn and digging deep (!) into the detritus at Corfe Castles everyday business and especially the Garderobe (or the toilet to you and me). 

I find it so animating to be presented with the challenges of a vast amount of historical data and wonderful stories and crafting them with other artists into an interpretation that i s both educational and entertaining, with a few laughs on the way.

If you have read my Twitter post @StorytellerUK you will have read what the children replied when we asked them if they needed anything else from our first performances:

"more about poo, bottoms and cleaning your bottom after the garderobe" 

out of the mouths of babes!

Anyway - this week it's King John (Boo!)

Saturday 17 and Sunday 18 September

11.30,1.00pm and 2.30pm 

and then it's Edward I (urm! Hooray!)

Saturday 24 and Sunday 25 September

11.30,1.00pm and 2.30pm

Hope to see you there and come and say hello!
