The Longshed in Woodbridge will be holding the story telling events throughout July and August to bedazzle the children during the school holidays.

Woodbridge Riverside Trust (WRT) has arranged the hour-long workshops alongside professional storytellers to transport kids to new worlds of fantastical folklore, including tales of dragons, pirates and the infamous 'Wildman of Orford'.

A total of 10 workshops will take place over the next two months to entertain children and inspire their imagination including professional performer Justine de Mierre, who will also present some "extreme storytelling" where she improvises a brand-new story on-the-spot from audience suggestions.

Annie Leech, a trustee of WRT, said: "This is a superb event for the summer holidays and is designed to suit children of all ages. This is a great chance to drag our children away from their computer screens and show them how powerful their own imaginations can be."

The sessions will be held in the John Gibbins Gallery at the Longshed with audience numbers of no more than 40 people.

Tickets for two people cost just £4.40 (including booking fee).
