Enjoy a costumed dramatic performance of the story of Beowulf in the stunning setting of Aston Hall.

An epic story of heroism, nobility and bravery, battling against fearsome monsters and a hoard-guarding fire-breathing dragon!

This solo performance is adapted from the original Anglo-Saxon, but remaining faithful to the original, when legends and stories would have been told by the fire by bards.

As performed at the Jorvik Viking Festival in York, returning there by popular demand and great reviews from previous performances.

This event is a rare opportunity for grown-ups and older children to indulge in a great story, the event is open to all ages; however, we are celebrating the traditional art of storytelling so please be prepared to switch off your phones, sit, hear the crackling of the fire, and thoroughly enjoy listening to this spellbinding performance.
