THE ST. JOHN’S STORYTELLING FESTIVAL presents:

Tales From Near & Afar {8 – 10 pm} @ Gower St. United Church lecture hall
$15 cash at the door  |  **This venue is wheelchair accessible

Catch the big finale show of the 16th annual St. John’s Storytelling Festival, with a powerhouse lineup of the very best local and visiting storytellers. It’s a riveting night of tales and song from Uganda to British Columbia, from St. John’s to the fictional Newfoundland town of Raisin Arm. Old classics meet new ones: traditional Newfoundland tales like Peg Bearskin bump up against true tales from childhood in Uganda; African folk tales dance alongside songs that pour out love for the landscapes of Newfoundland and Labrador. A star studded lineup featuring Andy Jones, Shayna Jones (BC), Grace Okwera, Ken Parsons, and Sage Tyrtle (ON). Hosted by Shirley Montague.
