Go on a journey through the forest with storyteller


A FANTASY of a far-away forest and an extraordinary tale is coming to life.

Well-known and well-loved teller of extraordinary tales, Shonaleigh Cumbers returns to the Story Café at Bridport Arts Centre on Friday May 20 for the fourth year running.

Shonaleigh Cumbers brings the story of The Opal Forest, where nobody emerges unscathed.

Hear what happens to the scholar who becomes a hero, the wise man who is driven mad, while the fool becomes a warrior without reason and the innocent are older than they should be.

Learn that the happiness of a single moment can last a lifetime and a landscape of sorrow can last beyond the grave. The key is knowing which forest to get lost in, which mountain to climb and which battle to walk away from.

Shonaleigh and The Tale of the Opal Forest at Story Café, Bridport Arts Centre on Friday May 20. The storytelling begins at 7.30pm.
