The Glory and the Pity of it: Living Side By Side in Al Andalus
Sef Townsend
Wednesday 20th March
STC 2403 Sef Townsend STC FB.jpg

Sef tells stories and sings a song or two from the time when Muslims, Christians and Jews lived in relative harmony, for 800 years, in 'Al-Andalus, or Safarad’, Spain. It is impossible to deny the richness of life that existed during that golden period, with a flourishing of Literature, Arts and Science, whose ramifications led directly to the Renaissance in Europe.

This cross fertilising of language, custom, songs and poetry resulted in wonderful tales and romanças set at this fecund time of coexistence - and the many stories of how people negotiated their way through expulsion, forced conversion and execution are compelling.

The Saga of the Ring
Jon Mason
Wednesday 17th April
STC 2404 Jon Mason KGC.jpg

A hero. A promise. A dragon. A treasure. If only it were so simple...

Sigurd, exiled prince, seeks his destiny in slaying the dragon Fafnir - but there are deeds afoot that he can only guess at. Soon he and those he loves - the valkyrie Brunhild, the princess Gudrun, her brothers Gunnar and Hogni - find themselves caught up in mysterious forces and ancient hatreds, as a cursed treasure threatens to consume them all. This may be a tale of magic and monsters, but sometimes the greatest challenges are within ourselves...

Drawn from medieval manuscripts and ancient poetry, the story of the Ring is one of the oldest and most acclaimed in Norse legend. It has inspired masterworks by Tolkien, Wagner and others, and echoes through modern culture. Jon Mason, storyteller and lover of mythology, shares his telling of this most archetypal and human of myths.
