'Fabled Nights in Newport' 21 October 2016

Fabled Nights in Newport is an open-hearted space for folks who want to learn to craft true tales, traditional stories, tall tales and yarns. 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 about 10 minutes, give or take.
In September we were treated to Dave C who is working out how he can tell the stories of his ancestors in an engaging way. Did you know that once there were dairy farms in Braybrook? Mary nailed it with a perfectly crafted tale from her childhood, the sweet revenge of young school girls on a grumpy bus driver. Jackie demonstrated how she uses her kamishibai storytelling box to share a story about marriage equality. The queen of the traditional folk tale, Susan always weaves a spell. Alex and Miles, our father and son tandem tellers are building their repertoire of trad tales and David D unpacked the nursery rhyme Hickory Dickory Dock. And there was more...

A special congratulations to Matt who has been coming along to Fabled Nights and honing his skill. Matt took himself off to The Moth Fringe show and smashed it!!! So we just might crack a bottle of bubbly this month!
A feature of Fabled Nights in Newport is cake and in September, Lana Woolf (who couldn't be with us) sent along a carrot and walnut cake. Let's just say ... the cake bar has been raised. It was excellent!

COST: $3.00 members $5.00 non members
TIME: 7.30 - 10.00
WHERE: THE NEWPORT SCOUT HALL. Market Street Newport (opp The Substation and squeezed between the Newport RSL and Bowls Club).     
There will be tea/coffee and biccies.
There are food venues in nearby Mason Street. Or feel free to bring some food and wine and make yourselves comfortable.

We ask that kind hearts and common sense prevail - misogynist, racist and homophobic stories hurt people. Please don’t bring them to Fabled Nights in Newport.
