Half Term Storytelling with Phil Okwedy

Posted by Tenby Museum on Feb 11, 2020 Blog, Forthcoming Events No Comments

On Friday 21 February, as part of the half-term holidays, performance storyteller Phil Okwedy will once again be bringing his imaginative narrative skills to Tenby Museum and Art Gallery for a session entitled Traditional and World Stories for All Ages.

Phil was born in Cardiff to a Welsh mother and Nigerian father. He draws deeply on his dual heritage and multiple cultures in his performances. Phil regularly performs in storytelling clubs and has featured at Beyond the Border and Aberystwyth Storytelling Festival, as well as at Kea Festival in Greece and Fabula Festival in Sweden.   In 2018 he published his first book, Wil & the Welsh Black Cattle, a set of Welsh folktales framed around the mythology of the ancient cattle drovers.

Curator Mark Lewis said, “We have worked with Phil on several occasions and his skill at holding an audiences attention, bringing a story to life and making this audience part of the story is second to none. We are very excited to have Phil back and really look forward to again hearing his stories.”

The event starts at 10.30 am and runs until 12.30pm. Kids are free and the cost for accompanying adults will be £2.00 per head. Please do get in touch if you are interested in attending (01834 842809).
