|Matt McArthur (Diver Matt) weaving his spell at the the May Fabled Night|
'Fabled Nights in Newport' is an open-hearted space for people who want to learn to craft true tales, traditional stories, tall tales and yarns; heart to heart and without notes. We welcome beginners and experienced folks. So come and strut your stuff, share what you know, try out a new story or tell a tale for the first time.
There's room for around 10 storytellers and we ask that stories be no longer than 10 minutes, give or take. We ask that stories be said not read.
Let kind hearts and commonsense prevail: racist and homophobic stories hurt people so please don't bring them to 'Fabled Nights'.
COST: $5.00 or $3.00 (Storytelling Vic and Newport Fiddle and Folk Club members). No Booking required.
'Fabled Nights in Newport' is a partnership event with Hobsons Bay Libraries and is supported by the Newport Fiddle and Folk Club.

In May we were taken behind the scenes of a children's birthday party in a Fairy Shop, treated to a Norwegian tale of Troll magic, driving lessons in the 1950s, the power of small gestures of love, the risks of the workplace and a pourquoi story from Korea. And Matt shared a hilarious, visceral underwater experience - delivered with great style! Thanks to all who stayed and helped put the room back in order and clean up the kitchen. Without the storytellers and the listeners, urn boilers and the cake makers, there would be no Fabled Nights!
