Advance £10/Door £12
Tristan and Iseult is one of the great love stories, spanning the lands and seas of Cornwall, Ireland and Brittany. Hear afresh the rapture in music that drifts across the water, the tenderness of a healing touch, the passion in a game of chess, the intimacy of an apple orchard and the thrill of clutching at your lover’s hand and fleeing to the wild secret places of this land.
Katy Cawkwell picks a clear, brilliant path through this many-layered legend, mingling story with snatches of Gaelic song and touching her listeners with the excitement, beauty and tragedy of this timeless tale.
Katy has been storytelling for 20 years across Britain and beyond, featuring in international festivals from India to Iceland and captivating audiences from the Barbican stage to a burial chamber on Anglesey. She was shortlisted for an Arts Foundation Award and has featured on Radio 3 and 4. She is well-known for unravelling complex narratives into richly entertaining, glittering stories that linger in the mind long after they are told. Her previous work includes The Falcon Bride (Njal’s Saga), The Kingdom of the Heart and Rhiannon, which was also published in book form.
