An evening of cinnamon-spiced tales & songs.
On Friday 17th December, the St Ives Library will be hosting it’s first evening event in long time when it welcomes the extraordinary talents of Annamaria Murphy and The Story Republic performing ‘Dark Nights Stories and Songs‘.
Annamaria Murphy is artistic director of The Story Republic and one of Cornwall’s leading writers (Radio 4, Kneehigh Theatre) of stories inspired by Cornwall’s rich and varied communities which she captures with her own distinctive humour and slightly wicked delight!
The Story Republic are an ensemble of performers who perform widely at events and festivals. They have recently returned from sea-tossed adventures in the Isles of Scilly. Their repertoire is a rich medley of stories, poems and gorgeous harmonies inspired by Cornwall, many written by Anna but also other contemporary writers as well as the great Charles Causley. They are renowned for their wit, glamour and alluring storytelling.
The library will be illuminated by the beautiful shadow lanterns created during our ‘Create a Winter Story in a Box’ workshops, taking place on 11/12/21.
• The library will be open from 6pm for wine, mince pies and book browsing with the performance starting at 7pm & ending at approx. 8:30pm
• Suitable for anybody aged 8+.
• Tickets are £12 adults and £8 under 16s.
• Book for both ‘Dark Nights Stories & Songs’ and our ‘Create a Winter Story in a Box Workshop’ to receive a combined £2 discount.
