GREEK MYTHS FOR GROWN-UPS (day & eve event)

Cranborne Earthouse, Dorset, BH21 5RP
Sat 13th July 2019

With Alice Oswald, Hugh Lupton, Ben Haggarty, Daniel Morden, Acrojou, Dr Helen King, The Trans-Siberian March Band.

Get into Greek myths, Crick Crack Club Style!

Encounter epics by firelight, the musings of shipwrecked warriors, wild ideas, gravity-defying Satyrs and an explosion of Balkan brass, as we enter a world where humans are the playthings of the gods.

Midas with his golden touch, Artemis the wild huntress, Orpheus in the underworld, Atalanta raised by bear, Odysseus trying to get home. This is a one-day extravaganza of stories, jesters, words, music, food, beautiful countryside & a stunning venue.

Whether you know nothing, or lots about Greek mythology, or have only ever encountered them in their censored childhood guise, then this will be a feast for your imagination!

Come and do it like they do on Mount Olympus...
