˜Ferment the Nectar'

-Dance, Performance & Storytelling-

As autumn draws near, you are warmly welcomed to join us for storytelling and a dance in the Great Hall, as we celebrate the seasons turning.

Let us gather & store the inspirations of the summer nectar, and ferment our collective ideas & energies into a shared honey of community creativity; to sustain us in the winter months ahead.




SAMANTHA ROSE - Opening the Space

Sacred Storytelling to honour the earth and her natural cycles and support visions of a sustainable and hopeful future.

She has traveled around the world learning from some of the best Storytellers in the world including Martin Shaw, David Novak and Donna Washington. She has had the privilege to sit and learn from some aboriginal people of Australia, carrying their teachings and wisdom in her heart with respect. Samantha is deeply passionate about receiving and sharing the stories of a new earth.
