The month of March will see the Somerset Storyfest leaping and bounding its way around the county of Somerset with words, images and sounds for everyone.

    The 2013 festival will include FREE Family Events at Taunton Library on Saturday March 2 with a three-course feast of Storytelling, Puppet-Making and Art and the Museum of Somerset on Saturday March 23 with a ‘Making Hi-STORY’ event.

    The highlights of the festival will include the show ‘Grimm and Grimmer’ on Thursday March 7 for 10 years + and adults, then ‘Beat it, Speak it, Tell it’ on March 21, both at the Tacchi-Morris Arts Centre. The 21st event is an evening for 14-19 year olds of Beatbox, Performance Poetry and Storytelling from Dominic Buck, Liv Torc and Michael Loader as well as an Open Mic slot for you to take the stage.

    An afternoon of ‘Folk’s Tales’ at the Holburne Museum in Bath on March 10 and ‘Gory Stories’ on Saturday March 16 at the Bishop’s Palace in Wells will take the Storyfest out of the Taunton area for the first time.

    The festival returns to Halsway Manor on Sunday March 17 with a family afternoon of Tales of the Totem, Puppet-Making, Stories from Mauritius and the Cabinet of Curiosities with Projected Illustrations, Live Music, tea and cakes!

    Somerset Storyfest Director said “We are delighted to be back for 2013 especially in a year of difficult financial times for the Arts. We are very grateful for the support and assistance we have received from our funders to help SSF continue and develop and overjoyed to have made so many new partnerships with exciting and notable venues. Thanks go to the Brewhouse, who sadly slipped from the Arts map of Somerset recently, for helping us with our first steps last year”.
