Practical Bits:

We will meet at the car park opposite the church at 3:45pm. The car park is paid, accepting apps, card and cash. We will then start walking towards our location, which is a 10 min walk. The location is hidden away, so please be on time as you will miss the storytelling. Once we get there, we will light our candles, and they will provide the light as the darkness sets in.

Please bring a tea light candle in a jar, and a lighter

Please bring plenty of layers, and something waterproof to sit on.

The telling will take place in any weather, apart from very high winds, a storm, or torrential rain

Full kit list provided on purchase.

Toilets - There are some public toilets near our meeting point.
