Giants! Stories from the Bedrock of the British Isles

“There were giants on the earth in those days….”

Where did the Giants come from? Where have they gone? And who left all those megaliths, stone circles and rows lying around?

Dartmoor's Daughter will lead you up to Bonehill Rocks where we will sit together in the shelter of the ribcage of giants to be taken on a storytelling journey by Lisa Schneidau and Ronnie Conboy. They will tell some of the old myths, and explore the relationship between the Giants – the great rock builders – and the human beings that came after.

Join us for an evening of myth and story, of fun, wonder, music, laughter and a smidgen of comedy violence, and maybe you’ll find out…… 

“A truly entertaining and accomplished story telling.” 
“Magical and spell-binding.”


£10 adults (plus Eventbrite booking fee). Suitable for 14+
