  • Into the Marvellous — An evening with Martin Shaw

    Dr. Martin Shaw is one of the country’s best-loved storytellers and the leading teacher of myth of his generation. In troubled times it can be easy to fall into either despair or numbness, and it was a traditional role of the storyteller to rouse both beauty and vocation in such moments. To attend to the grace. In this electrifying evening, Shaw will bring myths that remind us of love, grief and the mysteries. He will also be talking about his new book, The Night Wages, a rumination on the vitality of ancient stories in modern times.

    £10 per ticket or to carry on the conversation after the event join At The Chapel for supper £15.

    Clubroom bar open from 6.30 pm; event starts promptly at 7pm.
