Storytelling at Ouseburn Farm

Date: 3rd June 2017
Time: 10:00 am  to  2:15 pm

Spider’s Eye

Come down to Ouseburn Farm and listen to magical stories about magnificent mini-beasts. It could be that these tiny creatures have biggest surprises in store!

The storytelling sessions will be lead by Pascale Konyn who been working as a professional storyteller since the early nineties, and tells stories gathered from many world cultures.

Her storytelling has been described as “magical”. Pascale has toured nationally, performing both as a solo artist and in collaborations with other artists and musicians. She is often commissioned to create stories within the oral tradition for particular groups or situations. She has a wealth of experience of working in wide range of contexts including community and education settings, from schools, libraries and theatres to the natural environment, with people of all ages.

We are holding 5 half-hour Spider’s Eye sessions:-

10.00am to 10.30am

10.45 to 11.15am

11.30am to 12noon

1pm to 1.30pm

1.45pm to 2.15pm

To avoid disappointment we recommend you book your tickets in advance online as places are limited and will be allocated on a first come first served basis.  Adults go free!

The booking for the event will close before the event takes place, often on the afternoon of the last working day prior to the event.  There may still be tickets available; unless this event shows either that booking is essential or that tickets are “sold out” you may still be able to attend simply by turning up on the day.  However, do note that places are always allocated on a first come first served basis because of number restrictions.

Aimed at families with children.  Children should be accompanied by a responsible adult.


Location: Ouseburn Farm, Ouseburn Road (off Lime Street), Newcastle upon Tyne, NE1 2PA
