Rangers at Severn Valley Country Park are delighted to be welcoming professional storyteller Sal Tonge for an evening of ‘dark stories for winters nights’ on Thursday 11 February, starting at 7.30pm.

During the evening visitors can expect some shiver some tales and chuckles as Sal dips into her rattle bag of twaddle and taradiddles to share some of the oral bric-a-brac which has come her way. With the occasional song thrown in here and there to vary the pace, this is guaranteed to be a fun evening for audiences aged 10 years and over.

Sal is a popular Shropshire based storyteller with a 25 year career. During this time she has created, arranged and recorded stories for children, as well as working as a trainer to develop skills in sharing stories. Sal is also a part-time mermaid!

Susie Comaish, visitor centre manager, said:

“We are always looking for new events to hold at the park for our visitors to enjoy so we are very happy to be welcoming Sal for what will be an exciting evening of storytelling.”

The event ‘Dark Stories For Winter Nights’ will be held in the visitor centre, Severn Valley Country Park, Alveley on Thursday 11 February 2016, from 7.30pm-9pm. Tickets are £4 for adults and £2 for children (aged 10-16). Ticket price includes a hot drink and biscuits.
