 Speech and song, story and verse, write it down, tell them from memory or off the cuff – everything and everyone welcome.

Following in the oral tradition of the Black Country, we want to share and preserve our stories. Come and hear our stories and share some of yours, there will be 4 sessions over the year with a theme for each session, including music, performance and object handling.

Theme for Sat 1 Apr: Just Fooling: let’s celebrate the spirit of misrule

Come along and share your memories  of April Foolery, a funny rhyme or tell us a joke!

“One year, when I was at school, I spent all evening making biscuits from mustard, vinegar and pepper and then took them in to school for April 1st” (Dave Reeves)

Fireside Tales will be led by Dave Reeves, the Museum Poet in Residence
