Event Details:

CWTSH FIRST FRIDAYS proudly presents CHRISTINE WATKINS talking about, and reading from, her new book GWENT FOLK TALES at THE CWTSH, 226 Stow Hill, Newport, NP20 4HA on Friday, July 5th, 2019. Starts 7.30 pm. Admission £3-00.  This is a Cwtsh Fund Raiser. Licensed Bar available. Disabled Access.   
Gwent Folk Tales teems with stories of magic and strange transformations above and below ground. How and why did the star-browned ox walk through a dream; what happened when Pegws found herself without Reverend Ridge in Carmel Chapel and how the owl flew in low over the foxgloves, trying to sense from which direction change might come.
Gwent Folk Tales brings to life long-told tales and weaves them beautifully with stories told to the author by family members. To tell these Wonderfully illustrated and engaging stories afresh, Christine Watkins has searched out sharks’ teeth in the longest cave, chased The Dog of Darkness through a maze of mountain mist and salvaged a wise woman’s ironstone from the river. Truly, an evening not to be missed.
