Pedlar's Tales

Arts Alive are delighted to be a partner in the creation of The Pedlar's Tale, a new micro touring storytelling show, inspired by Herefordshire Archives and produced by The Fetch Theatre Company.


What's it all about:

The storyteller weaves a magical spell and draws you into a fantastical world bringing past events bursting into life in this pop up touring show with music, featuring a host of beautiful puppets. Bite-sized stories contained in a quirky cart drawn by a goat have been inspired by fascinating historical documents and objects from Herefordshire Archives. The cart also contains a ‘magical’ box, to collect stories from you, the audience.


This is an engaging performance for families suitable for indoor and outdoor venues, festivals and community events. The show can be performed episodically enabling audiences to dip in and out as the stories are performed throughout the day or, sit down, relax and enjoy all the stories performed together as ‘Silver Joan’s’ tales unfold.


Due to premiere at the end of July. We can't wait!
