"The Nectar of the Gods" - The Travelling Talesman

"The Nectar of the Gods" - The Travelling Talesman
The Travelling Talesman has been hard at work researching another set of enthralling and amusing stories to engage your ears and minds. On the 10th July he will bring you "The Nectar Of The Gods": time honoured tales of mythological brewings, legendary fermentations and deities drinking divine beer.
From Sumeria to Finland our most ancient writings include stories of beer. It puts words in the poet's mouth, it calms the savage breast and in the earliest cities it was considered the very basis of civilized society. 
...and yet, whether it’s finding the ingredients, obtaining the vessel to brew it in, or the things they get up to under the influence, the Gods seem to have trouble making it and they cause trouble drinking it.
The Travelling Talesman is a performer of myths legends and folktales with over 20 years professional experience touring the country and performing everywhere from festivals, fairs and fun days to pubs, restaurants, castles and even a river, knee deep!
"Storytelling is where it all began" he says, "it is the source for all modern forms of entertainment, the tap root of theatre, the essence of TV, the mother of literature, poetry and song." 
Join him for a bardic bevy. Appropriate for 16+ years.

We are offering three ticket types for this event:

- Standard ticket is the ‘normal’ price that we would charge for the event
- Pay a bit more is for those who can afford to, and would like to help support live music and our artists
- Pay a bit less is for those who would find the standard ticket a bit of a stretch, for whatever reason

You can purchase whichever ticket you like; you don’t need to give a reason, and you won’t be asked for any proof of need. For online events you only need to purchase one ticket per household/computer.

We are trialling this ticket system to help make our events more accessible to more people, and to allow those who would happily pay a bit more to do so easily, helping us to subsidise tickets for those who can’t afford them.
