Snowdonia has long been a centre of magic and spiritual power. It is marked by standing stones, stone circles, burial chambers and hillforts. It was the hinterland of the ancient Druids. Some of the oldest surviving stories of Britain arose there – about the Enchantment of Bran, the Woman of Flowers, the Quest for Mabon, the Cauldron of Inspiration, Merlin and the Dragons… This evening Eric will take you on a walk through this mystical landscape and breathe life into these tales in an inspiring and original way.
In the early eighties Australian-born Eric Maddern worked in the Aboriginal communities of Central Australia. Since 1986 he’s lived in North Wales where he has created the renowned Cae Mabon retreat centre. He is a storyteller specialising in telling tales in historic sites and natural settings. His ‘Snowdonia Folktales’ is just out.
