Yesterday I popped along to the launch of the Aberdeen Storytelling Festival, a unique event taking place in one of the shop units in Aberdeen’s Bon Accord Centre.
We were welcomed with a short speech by the Deputy Lord Provost and an entertaining story from Pauline Cordiner which told us the true value of the delicious smell of the local buttery. We were then shown the super storytelling booklets to help children tell their own stories before popping behind a magical screen to the storytelling area for drinks and nibbles.
We did not, however, get “more cream”. Well, we did, but only in the form of a very entertaining story for the gathered children and “big kids”. It was only a shame that I had to run off back to work at that point as I was really enjoying myself.
The festival (part of the Aberdeen International Youth Festival) continues today and tomorrow, so get yourself down to the Bon Accord centre and enjoy some great stories and even try telling one yourself.
