What’s On

A guide to what’s happening in the world of history over the coming weeks

English Heritage Storytelling Weekend

Whitby Abbey, Whitby, 25-27 May and St Augustine’s Abbey, Canterbury, 6-7 June

Would you like to meet Bram Stoker, Agatha Christie, Geofrey Chaucer or Charles Dickens? That’s what English Heritage is ofering – plus many other writers – with its inaugural Storytelling Weekends, taking place in the picturesque ruins of Whitby Abbey in North Yorkshire over the bank holiday weekend of 25-27 May, and St Augustine’s Abbey in Kent on 6-7 June. Famous authors from history, played by performers, will be on stage and hosting writing workshops – and perhaps engaging in spirited debates with each other. The fun-filled weekends of storytelling, music, games and poetry are part of a broader Telling Tales season, exploring how myths, legends and folklore have shaped our understanding of history.
