Come out of the darkness and into the light with traditional stories and folk tales from storyteller Pauline Cordiner.
Pauline will take you back to a time before electric light filled our homes and our night skies – to when communities gathered round a fire to pass the time sharing stories and songs and leave the darkness outside.  Where did the sun come from?  Who put the stars in the sky? Why does the moon bathe us in her light and what happens when she is stolen away from us?
Stories are for all ages and listeners from 2 to 102 will be sent on their way with a smile on their faces and light in their hearts.
