Wales is regarded as one of the most fascinating and historical regions of the world, with legends, battles and tales among some of the popular stories. To experience some excellent poetry and literature, you can go along to Beaumaris Castle, which is running an event in conjunction with National Storytelling Week. Cadw invites you to join a story teller at one of the 15 sites across the country, to celebrate Wales’ fine heritage. Visitors to seaside Snowdonia holiday parks should pop along to experience some local stories and culture.
Stories are present all around us – Books, newspapers, internet and television. They are much more than bedtime stories and are entangled with our everyday lives. Sometimes stories come in the form of culture and art and are significant uses on the way in which we experienced our world. Story telling is an important part of our lives and should be embraced during all kinds of occasions.
Go along to Beaumaris Castle, built as part of Edward I’s campaign to conqueror North Wales after 1282. The castle was never fully completed, but still offers visitors a great day out at an interesting and historical site. A storyteller will be offering stories based on historical characters, legends and myths from across Wales during the National Storytelling Week this January.
Go and listen to the stories of perfect princesses, noble knights, fire breathing dragons and grand hall feastings, where the funniest, foulest and most exciting Welsh stories are revealed and told to those who wish to participate. The Beaumaris storytelling day takes place on 27th January 2013 at 11am – 4pm and promises to be entertaining and interesting!
Each story can last up to 30 mins. No booking is required for the event. Adults admissions is £4.00, Children £3.60, Families £11.60 and members are granted free access. Those staying in Snowdonia Holiday Parks are conveniently located to take a trip along to enjoy this event!
