Stories by the Fire: 30th June

For more years than we can count on one hand, Storytelling Australia Victoria has been hosting this evening of Stories by the Fire as part of the Newport Folk Festival

This year our MC is Matt McArthur. Matt is a versatile storyteller but is particularly known for his science stories (Laborastory); he is also a Moth storyteller, a regular at Fabled Nights and contributor to World Storytelling Day, urn boiler, cup washer ... you name it!

Matt has been spending a considerable amount of time in the Antarctic and clearly enjoys the fashions! You can subscribe to his podcast Iced Coffee and enjoy stories of the history and human activity in Antarctica.

Stories by the Fire is a casual open event; we set up a chalk board and invite storytellers to put their names up and share a tale of around 10 minutes or less. We will have a bell! We welcome all genres, ask that you tell not read , and we request that kind hearts prevail. Racist and homophobic stories hurt people.

Storytelling Australia Victoria takes pride in welcoming new comers to the hearth.

So mark it in your diary, and while you're at it, keep an eye on the festival program. The Newport Folk Festival is a grass roots celebration fueled by the passion of the local folkies.

This is an inter-generational event but not suitable for the very young 12+.

Soup, cake and chai are served by the Storytelling Australia Victoria team on the night.

WHEN: June 30
WHERE: Newport Scout Hall Market Street opposite The Substation
TIME: 6.00 pm
