Praise for Tom van Outryve and the September Cafe

Lovely food & great entertainment.


A warrior maiden dreams about snakes, a girl marries a dead man and a kingdom falls into ruin. But when a serpent makes a promise, can it be trusted? And what should you do when you meet the Mistress of Snakes? Would you die for love?

Welcome to the realm of the serpent - death-bringer, life-giver, the beginning and end of all things.

Interweaving storytelling, ritual and evocative music, acclaimed British-Bulgarian storytelling company A Spell In Time presents wild and wonderful skin-shedding tales of transformation from the heart of Bulgarian myth and folklore. Performers are: Moni Sheehan, storyteller and Ivor Davies, musician.
