Telling Our Stories
Thu 01 Jan 1970
Join us for, Telling Our Stories, Finding Our Roots, an evening of rich story-telling, music and verse bringing a new multi-cultural perspective to Exeters history. Original stories of people from around the world, moving to, living in and affecting lives in Exeter.
Featuring true stories, traditional tales and secrets uncovered from Exeters past, the event will be hosted by local story-teller Sandhya Dave and local historian Lucy MacKeith.
