Dark Tales from the Woods

100 years ago the famous Welsh gypsy family the Woods told wild fairy tales around the fire, tales of shapeshifting and magic and drama and danger. Daniel Morden will retell some of these thrilling  AND POSSIBLY GORY tales with wit, passion and gusto.  Suitable for adults and young people over 10.
