Travel back to medieval times at the Dowse with Jakob Rowlinson’s Faerie Land, and two enchanted storytimes.

Bring the kids along from 3:30pm–4:30pm to hear classic tales of knights in armour, swords in stones, foxes and hounds, and merry men.

Then from 6pm-7pm we're transforming the Dowse into a medieval inn, where our bards will regale us with short stories while you sup on the finest mead. Come along and relax while some of the best storytellers in the land read you grown up bedtime stories.
