About this event

On Wednesday 9th August, Beeston Tales returns with the brilliant internationally renowned storyteller Xanthe Gresham who brings us her Bag of Wonders.

Xanthe's style is highly energetic and distinctive and has captivated audiences all over the world, and Beeston Tales feels very lucky to host her next month: We were enraptured! The Telegraph; Exquisite timing! The Irish Times; Held the audience in the palm of her hand! New Zealand Times. Speaks like a woman spitting jewels Arts Council of England.

With Bag of Wonders, Xanthe brings us storytelling that’s as sharp as a lemon and as sweet as a nut. Accept it or not, we’re all hooked on our baggage system, whether it’s a clutch bag or a holdall, but forget what’s in yours, and come and rummage around in Xanthe’s bottomless bag. Between the kitchen sink and the old tube tickets lies a pick and mix of marvels, fibs and fables. See what you can pull from this lucky dip!

An audible feast! Gulf News, Waiheke Island New Zealand
