Adventures in Storytelling

A collaboration between Story-teller Pyn Stockman and violinist Ann Jones playing the Violectra

This year they’re bringing two family friendly stories from “The Wondertale Mix” to Moseley Folk Festival.

Fox’s  Tale


The Golden Apples are going missing and the King doesn’t know what to do.

But at half past midnight feast two clever children journey deep into a forest filled with talking creatures where they meet a magical bird, a wild witch and a fox who has lost his courage.

This fast paced, family friendly performance is full of wonder, magic and the occasional sandwich!

With plenty of opportunities to join in


The Best Present


3 horses, 3 bags of gold and  3 heroes on a quest to settle an argument by finding the BEST present in all the world.

Follow them to far away kingdoms over mountains and sunlit seas to market places and wild woods in this wonder filled tale that will keep all the family captivated.
