Reading stories at Manchester Cathedral on Tuesday and today has been just wonderful! An opportunity for me to try out my stories on a large and discerning audience, and guess what? They loved them all! Even threw in a couple of songs. An afternoon of mask making was also great fun and filled the cathedral with the sound of children's laughter. Last storytelling session tomorrow at 11am
The dates are now set, I'll be reading The Troll of Manchester Cathedral and other Manchester stories at the Cathedral itself on 15th August, 18th August and 19th August. There'll also be mask making and children's discovery trails. All free!
More exciting developments; 'The Troll of Manchester Cathedral' will be featured in the Literacy Trust's Book Bench Trail in a specially themed Troll event at Manchester Cathedral. I'll be reading my book to listeners under the Hanging Ditch Bridge and there'll be other troll themed activities including family crafts and a Troll Treasure Trail. I can't wait! More details to follow!
Great news! The 'Troll of Manchester Cathedral' can now be purchased from St Denys' Manchester, at Manchester Cathedral Visitor Centre. It's a wonderful bookshop and you'll get the warmest welcome in Manchester with a free cup of coffee while you browse. Best of all, you can view the Hanging Ditch Bridge from the bookshop which, as readers of my book will know, is home to the mischievous Troll himself!
