Settle Stories Write:

From Friday 1st April until Sunday 3rd there will be over 50 events for both adults and families taking place in Settle.
On the Saturday and Sunday the Market Place will be a hive of FREE activity. We’ve planned an ‘Alice in Wonderland’ instillation where you’ll be able to have tea with Alice and the Mad Hatter. There will be an art tent for little crafters and we’ve got a ‘Word Tent’ where you’ll be able to grapple with words and snuggle up with a good read.
Tickets have sold better than ever before this year and people are travelling from across the UK to be part of this festival so don’t miss out on an event taking place in your community.
Our top recommendations that you simply can’t miss out on during the festival:

Adult Events:
Naked Stun: Following a total sell-out run at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe, and a successful UK tour, Alfie brings this critically acclaimed show to the Settle Stories Festival. The former Police Sergeant turned stand-up comedian, and star of his own hit BBC Radio 4 ‘It’s a Fair Cop’, tasers his way through an hour of hilarious and fascinating anecdotes drawn from his eighteen years on the beat.
”Lots of well-crafted jokes and a large dash of gallows police humor” **** The Sunday Telegraph

Friday 1st April, Settle Victoria Hall, Tickets: £12
Batty Moss Ceilidh:  Join us for a good old knees up! There’ll be two-stepping, promenading, swinging and waltzing. Guided by an expert caller – you’re guaranteed an exhilarating night.

Friday 1st April, Settle Victoria Hall, Tickets: £8 (includes snacks)
Master Myth teller: Myth is a kind of swan feather cloak that has enlightened communities about how to live with dignity, depth and a little style for thousands of years. Master storyteller, Martin Shaw will have you gripped from beginning to end with this outrageous piece of magic. His storytelling will have you entranced in a night of electrifying myth-telling.

Saturday 2nd April, Settle Victoria Hall, Tickets: £12
Family Events:
The Magic Carpet: Climb aboard the magic carpet. This flight with Rachel Rose Reid will be alive with interactive stories and songs. Where will they take us? Hold on tight and find out. Perfect for 4 – 8 year olds.

Saturday 2nd April, Settle Victoria Hall, Tickets: £8 under 18: £6 Family: £22
Jack Tales: We’ve all heard of Jack and the Beanstalk right? But did you hear about the day his mum called him a lazy lump and sent him into town for some fish for their supper? Or when she made him go out to work and couldn’t believe he could be such a silly lad when he came home?  Things didn’t change much when Jack got older and lived as a fisherman with his wife in an old ramshackle shack at the edge of the sea, the time he caught that talking fish.  These are just some of the antics that storyteller Garry Cordingley will share with you in this racous, interactive performance.

Sunday 3rd April, Settle Library, Tickets: £8 Under 18: £6 Family: £22 Suitable for 7+ years
Down the Rabbit Hole: You know the story of Alice. Imagine Lorina, Alice’s older sister, went down the rabbit hole. Find out who she met on a surreal adventure where things are never what they seem. Meet the crazy characters who mesmerise Lorina with fairy tales to guide her on her journey.
Will Lorina ever get home? Things can only get curiouser and curiouser…
Inspired by Lewis Carroll’s seminal work Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland, Down the Rabbit Hole premieres at the Settle Stories Festival 2016

Sunday 3rd April, Settle Victoria Hall, Tickets: £10 U18: £6 Family: £22 – Suitable for 10+ years
