Beautiful Lies And Startling Truths

Storytelling at Bishops Castle, Shropshire

Storytelling live online events

Online Event

Due to covid-19 live performance storytelling at the Town Hall will not be taking place.

That doesn't mean missing out on monthly trips into the land of story.

Friday 12th February 2021



Amy Douglas

Amy spent 2019 to 2020 revisiting her apprenticeship with renowned Scottish Traveller tradition bearer, Duncan Williamson.

A treasure trove of tapes, a year of listening and a changed world later, Amy shares of experiences of listening to tales of Traveller harassment as the Black Lives Matter campaign unfolded and stories of travelling, horse fairs and ceilidhs as our roads emptied and we stayed home.

Old stories for new times - our world keeps changing, but human nature stays the same.


Old stories for new times, Amy explores how to tell stories from her apprenticeship with Duncan Williamson in a new century and a different world…and yet human nature hasn’t changed at all…

Also featuring NEW VOICE Simon Lamb

Simon Lamb is a poet, performer and storyteller from Ayrshire, with a background in education.

In 2019, he toured Scotland with his one-man performance poetry show, suitable for all ages, and released his poetry pamphlet, Cathedral Sky.

He is an apprentice storyteller with the Scottish Storytelling Centre, and has enjoyed creating video poetry, available online, through the pandemic.
