1st update, 26/11/15
It is an exiting time of the year, with Stories in the Park just a few weeks away.
Things are starting to fall into place nicely and for those of you, who have not been to our previous December events, here is a basic layout of the program:
The event starts at 4pm, and right from the start we will have yummy food and refreshing drinks as well as coffee, hot chocolate and other delectables available. Various games will be set up around the park and we encourage young and not so young to have a go and play for a while. On the stage, musicians will provide live entertainment and during that time, before storytelling, there will be sur-prises and spot-prices, so get your best joke rehearsed and make sure you got your thinking cap on.
Also be sure to bring a camping chair, your finest pic-nic basket and a blanket for later in the evening.
Stories will start at 7.30, and the event will conclude around 10pm.
Food and drinks will be available right through the afternoon and evening, however, games will shut down from about 7.15.
Stories in the Park, our biggest event for the year, is starting to take shape. We have assembled a small group of team leaders to plan and run this year’s event (they will need helpers) and we are committed to making it a roaring success.
Currently we are raising awareness in the community about Stories in the Park and are seeking a select group of local businesses and individuals to help underwrite the show.
As in previous years, the gathering will start in the afternoon with games, music, food, perfomances, chances to win loads of spot prices and lots of laughter, however, the main part of course is the storytelling in the evening, when 8 local characters will take to the stage.
Quite a few people came forward after the last True Stories Told Live and volunteered to share one of their stories. Over the next few weeks, we will finalise the program and I’m very much looking forward to our first coaching session.
For now however, I’m signing off, as I’m far too exited about it all to sit here and write.
Best wishes and I’ll keep you posted,
