What you'll do

Add a sprinkling of story to your next outdoor adventure and let professional storyteller Pridie Tiernan whisk you away into the world of fairy and folk tale on this enchanting Leigh Woods story walk! (Available for private bookings of up to two people, this would suit individuals and couples who would enjoy the extra special experience of a story walk all to themselves!)

"The modern world still holds onto its magic...if we can attune ourselves to its enchantments” - Carolyne Larrington, Hag: Forgotten Folktales Retold

On this hour long wander about the woods, Pridie will share some of the ancient folklore associated with the trees, plants and creatures encountered along the way, and tell some beautiful folktales that are specially selected to relax, inspire and empower you. You can also enjoy learning some of the weird and wacky facts Pridie has learnt over the years - from practical bushcraft tips and ancient remedies to flower spells and animal spirit medicine!

So come and enjoy time in nature with the added magic of stories and folklore, on this very special one to one walk.
