LOST IN THE WOODS - THE DARK SIDE OF THE FAIRY TALE TRADITION

Thursday 12th March 7.30pm  @ ST THOMAS LIBRARY EXETER   £3

Part of Chris Brooks' series of talks on the history and evolution of folklore and fairy tales.

Abandoned children. Ravenous wolves. Witches' houses suspended on chicken legs. Are these just the woodland remnants of old wives' tales spun in the nursery or are they part of a universal storytelling tradition that the modern world ignores at a cost.

This talk and discussion session focuses on how we can learn from and enjoy again, as adults, those traditional tales of fearful forests that we thought were just for children.

FURTHER AND BEYOND - THE ANCESTRY OF THE FAIRY TALE

Thursday 14th May 7.30pm. @ ST THOMAS LIBRARY, EXETER  £4

Part of Chris Brooks' series of talks on the history and evolution of folklore and fairy tales.

Focussing on a range of classic tales including Cinderella, Hansel and Gretel and Bluebeard, Chris attempts to unlock some of the mysteries surrounding the evolution of these stories.

This talk will examine whether these universal and enduring tales have been solely dispersed over time and vast distances by travelling storytellers or do they spontaneously arise from the deep well of the human unconscious?
