Evening of storytelling for adults

Friday 13 May, 7pm-9.30pm


Event Description Has your life ever been held balanced on a knife edge? Has your fate been taken out of your hands, the difference between glory and ignominy depending on a gust of wind?

Lit by the sparkle of a storyteller's eye, immerse yourself in tales and legends where good luck, and bad, turn worlds upside down. The Polar Museum at S.P.R.I. host the Cambridge Storytellers as they recount adventures from the extreme north and south of the world. Inuit legends will be woven between moments from the epic tale of Ernest Shackleton's failed Trans-Antarctic expedition.

Tickets cost £6

Suitable for 18 years +
