Eden Project Summer of Celebration

Storytelling at the Eden Project

I was thrilled to be commissioned to write three short stories for Eden Project Storytellers to perform throughout their summer of Celebration across the site. I offered a selection of stories from Africa and the Caribbean islands and they chose three of my favourites. I was later invited to visit in person and perform stories during their August celebrations and it was wonderful to be involved. Here are photos of my storytelling in the Citrus Grove within the Mediterranean Biome. People of all ages came and joined in folktales, myths and legends from Nigeria, Uganda, Guyana and Trinidad. It was wonderful to have sometimes three generations within a group all jumping into stories together with me.
