Set Descending Direction

    Soaked in mist and old magic, the ancient stories of Britain begin between the Creation and Noah’s Flood, in an age when the earliest generation of giants walk the earth. Displaying the storytelling gift that kept our ancestors rapt by firelight, Amy Jeffs will breathe new life into enduring tales of extinction, homeland, parenthood, rebellion, love, loss, magic and faith. Following in the footsteps of Lear and Cordelia, of Arthur and Merlin, of Edward the Martyr and Gogmagog, she will take us through a still-recognisable landscape, featuring places known and characters half-remembered: Lear in Leicester, Joseph of Glastonbury, St Columba on the River Ness, Teneu in Glasgow and Bladud in Bath among them.
