Terrie Howey, the Red Phoenix, will take you on a journey through the county with Buckinghamshire folk tales of past, present and future: old tales in new towns, and new stories from old legends. Look out for witches and dragons, mind all those roundabouts, and whatever you do don’t eat the stew!

24th July, 2.00pm and 3.30pm. Each session will last approximately 1 hour and will take place in the garden (dependant on the weather), if the weather is too unsettled the event will take place in our large learning rooms.

Pre-booking essential. Entry by donation.
