gilesabbottThis summer York Explore Libraries and Archives have a wonderful line up of events of which I am very pleased to be a part of.

At 9am on Wednesday 21st June I shall be running a three hour voice workshop suitable for people of all abilities. It’s not just for those who do ‘public speaking’ – teachers, business people, writers, readers, bedside storytellers, anyone who opens their mouth can benefit. It’s about connecting you to your best voice wherever you are, whenever you need it. You will hear yourself as you have never heard yourself before! It’s dynamic, effective and great fun!

Later on at 6pm, I will be performing the Irish wondertale Mongan’s Frenzy. It is a magical, mysterious, sometimes slapstick, and deeply moving story of a man raised and educated by the Gods, but who completes his wisdom in our world, taught to him in the only way our world can teach wisdom, through pain. It’s a stunning story and one of my favourites. 2 x 45 minutes.
