Village Storytelling are sorry for the disappointment and inconvenience and hope to see you at one of our other family events - In Your Mind's Eye (Thursday 7th, 2pm) and Feast of Fools (Saturday 9th, 2pm).

Beware the Beasts will also be showing at the Edinburgh in August on 5th, 7th, 9th, 11th and 13th

Shona Cowie

Scotland was once full of magical beasts, absolutely full of them; bog goblins, dragons, naughty fairies, brownies, bony-backed-horsemen...all sorts. For the last 200 years they’ve kept themselves to themselves but recently, with lockdown and humans quietly stuck in their homes, the beasts have become braver, now they’re back.

For your protection, storyteller Shona Cowie will introduce the most fearsome of these creatures, provide case studies from successful monster evaders such as Granny and wee jamie and will instruct you on the most effective ways to avoid being squashed, trapped in a rock or turned into a nugget.
