Upcoming Events

On Friday 7th November, The Matlock Storytelling Cafe is proud to present The Battle of the Trees...


A storm rages; a child is born; an ancient secret uncovered. Somewhere, an army of trees begin to march…

The mesmeric Christine Cooper tells a twisted web of tangled stories, with the mysterious Welsh poem that inspired Tolkein and Shakespeare at its centre. The loss of millions of trees in the 1987 storm, an archaeological dig on a remote beach, the poet Robert Graves in a frenzy of inspiration, and Christine’s own family story are drawn together through moments of startling coincidence. The crime of the warrior chief Amaethon echoes down the centuries, and a voice speaks the words: I am Taliesin.

Audiences have been raving about this show as it has toured the british Isles - “Absolutely mesmerizing and beautiful, and so original. Thank you, thank you" ...“Wonderful, captivating story told by a wonderful, compelling storyteller.”

Tickets cost £7 and can be bought by calling Storytelling Cafe on 01629 580023. Or you can pay on the door. Delicious cakes and savoury snacks available. BYOB. The Café is in The Imperial Rooms, Matlock DE4 3NL. Doors open 6.45, show begins 7.30.
