Pen Hill the Giant keeps Yorkshire pigs shaped like sausages on trotters. But when one of them goes missing he gets very angry. Will anyone be safe with a giant in Wensleydale shouting, “Fee, fi, fo, fum.”? Join renowned storyteller Carmel Page and listen to some lively tales about local folk heroes. Suitable for all ages.

Carmel page is a storyteller and author. She is a Southerner by birth but has lived in Sheffield for so long she has started using her backdoor as her front door and eating her dinner at lunchtime. She has a house on the edge of Sheffield but tends to live in a world of her own. She wakes up every morning with her head so full of stories she likes to lie in bed and think about them for a long time. Carmel tells enchanting stories in schools, hospitals, museums, tents and cemeteries.

The History Press chose her to write Yorkshire Folk Tales for Children based on her reputation. The book was describe by the Yorkshire Reporter as “Captivating, enchanting and charming.”

Carmel’s stories transport you to lands where anything can happen and the world might never be the same again.

The Freinds of Coverham Church will be providing refreshments.  Visit their website for news on other exciting events and to sign up for news.
