Thalis for Tales

23rd Sep 2021 @ 12:00 - 21:30

Man standing under tree

An afternoon and evening of food, folklore, film and fundraising. Why not join for a lunchtime treat, meet the cast in their magnificent costumes, enjoy music and storytelling and hear the true story of Peter the Wild Boy.

OpenStorytellers are proud to launch their first film, Peter the Wild Boy made through lockdown. Followed by various Frome based storytellers and musicians, bringing us together exploring what is your wild and what it is to be a community.

Peter the Wild Boy is the true story of a man with learning disabilities who lived by himself in the forests of Hamelin. He was found as a child and transported to Kensington Palace where he became a scientific curiosity and national celebrity… and that’s just the beginning!

At its core, the story explores the question, What Is Your Wild? We will be showing snippets from the film, plus a feast of stories both live and on film. In addition, cast members will roam the event resplendent in the bespoke 18th Century costumes created for us by international costumier Dulcie Best, inspired by the work of our own illustrator, Robin Meader.

12 – 3pm, Openstorytellers film launch.
3.30 – 5pm, kids activities.
5.30 – 9.30, food, music and storytelling.

OpenStoryTellers is a community performing arts charity supporting people with learning disabilities and autism. We help people to find their voice and use it. Stories are what make us human, they help us make sense of the world, make friends and take part in society. They also connect us to the natural world … the Wild that exists within us all.

Lungi Babas, providers of authentic South Indian cuisine, hold a special place in the hearts (and appetites) of the Frome community. For proprietor, Mahesh Kommu, food and flavour are intimately connected to the sensory world of story. Side by side with Sustainable Frome, Lungi Babas are delighted to hold this event as a fundraiser for Openstorytellers.

Part of The Great Big Green Week.
