Tales of the Forgotten North

Join us in Elsdon, one of the most historic villages of Northumberland National Park for an afternoon to stir your imagination and spark your creativity…..
Chris Jones, Historic Environment Officer for Northumberland National Park, will begin the afternoon talking about the wealth of history and archaeology of Elsdon. This will be followed by a story created and told by professional storyteller Pascale Konyn, inspired by the history and archeology of Elsdon, and drawing on Celtic traditions. There will be an opportunity for discussion/Q & A and, of course refreshments to be consumed.  To finish off the afternoon Chris Jones will lead a short walk of the village.
To avoid disappointment we recommend you book your tickets in advance online as places are limited and will be allocated on a first come first served basis.
