The Serpent's Kiss: Tales of Hidden Bulgaria

A Spell in Time


It is a few years since Storytelling Cafe last presented Moni and Ivor with one of their re-tellings of their rich, magical versions of Bulgarian myths. We are delighted to welcome them back to Kitchen Garden Cafe, our favourite venue for storytelling. Great atmosphere, great food and great drink.


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.
