Many years ago, a group of people travelled to Canterbury, swapping stories.
They were pilgrims, travelling to the shrine of St Thomas a Becket. Along the way, they told stories competitively – the best story got a free meal.
We never find out if they reached Canterbury, or what happened there, because Geoffrey Chaucer never finished writing The Canterbury Tales.
If you have never heard of Chaucer, or his classic stories, don’t worry. That’s not necessary.
All you need to know is that we’ve pinched his idea of a storytelling pilgrimage, and updated it for the 21st century.
