During the launch evening, a large audience gathered to enjoy stories from international storyteller Peter Chand, Libraries NI Storyteller in Residence, Liz Weir MBE and emerging storytellers from the audience during the open mic segment of the evening.
Tullycarnet Yarnspinners, now in its 29th season is supported by the Armstrong Storytelling Trust, a charity set up in memory of Peg & Jim Armstrong who founded the sessions in 1991.
This upcoming 2019/20 programme promises to deliver a diverse and eclectic mix of storytellers from the USA, India, Iceland, Turkey, Ireland, England and Scotland delivering engaging traditional, humorous, dark and spellbinding tales about hidden people, trolls, local legends and Giants. Popular favourites will also make a welcome return to Tullycarnet Library as featured storytellers.
Libraries NI Storyteller in Residence, Liz Weir MBE said:
“Tullycarnet Yarnspinner evenings give our audiences the chance to listen to professional storytellers from all around the globe and yet also affords an opportunity to local storytellers to share the stage and hone their craft. It’s a very welcoming atmosphere and I would encourage anyone who is interested to come along and enjoy a yarn.”
Tullycarnet Yarnspinners meet once a month in Tullycarnet Library at 8:00pm and admission is £4 per session.
