It will feature performances at the Imperial Rooms in Matlock by Amy Douglas and Lucy Wells.

Amy Douglas has been storytelling throughout her whole life. Her most recent book - Shropshire Folk Tales - won a Storytelling World Honours Award. She is a gossip, wordsmith and lover of the spoken word in all its forms.

A storyteller of integrity, wit and subtle humour, she has been an integral part of the re-emergence of torytelling in Shropshire and Britain.

Musician, performer and artist, Lucy Wells has always loved stories and the gold thread of narrative runs bright through all her multi-faceted work. Lucy has a deep-rooted love of the natural world and traditional story is the heartbeat of our connection with the world around us. Lucy is a qualified Tai Chi teacher, and an initiated fire keeper with the Sacred Fire community, a global movement of people dedicated to raising awareness of the living nature of the world and elemental forces.

Doors open at 6.45pm so make sure you are sitting comfortably for a 7.30pm start.
