Chaucer’s Game, Hampstead, 24 April 2019
24,Wed Apr 2019
Waterstones , London
Many hundreds of years ago, Geoffrey Chaucer wrote a story about people who went on a journey, telling stories.
The Canterbury Tales involved all sorts of people, pilgrims heading to a site of special interest to them.
We never find out what happens there, or even if they reach their destination. But we get to hear their stories, which they tell to pass the time – as a (mostly) good-natured competition.
The person who tells the best story gets a prize.
You too could win a prize, if you come and play Chaucer’s Game with us.
We’ll be walking a shorter distance, over a period of hours, not days.
On this particular occasion, we’ll be walking around Hampstead Heath, in north London, with destinations that are secular, but sacred to storytellers.
On the way, you will learn storytelling techniques that can improve both impromptu storytelling and stories you might want to plan and work up over a longer period.
More importantly, you’ll get exercise, and company.
Please come. We’d love to have you with us.

What do I need to bring?
