Xanthe Gresham Knight presents “The Bag of Wonders”

July 5 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm

Storytelling as sharp as a lemon and sweet as a nut.

Accept it or not, we’re all hooked on our baggage system, whether it’s a clutch bag or a holdall, but forget what’s in yours, and come and rummage around in Xanthe’s bottomless bag. Between the kitchen sink and old train tickets lies a pick and mix of marvels, fibs and fables. See what you can pull from this lucky dip!

An international performance storyteller and author of ‘Goddesses and Heroines’ (Thames and Hudson), Xanthe Gresham Knight sews together myth, song, poetry and wondertale with humour and passion.

An audible feast! Gulf News, Waiheke Island New Zealand

Speaks like a woman spitting jewels… Phil Smith for the Arts Council of England

Gresham is a truly great storyteller who unwraps each story like the petals of a lotus. British Theatre Review
