Our next events in March – Collaborations with Sydenham Arts Word Fair and Seniors

After successful events last year at Sydenham Arts Festival we are pleased to announce we are working together again putting on two events as part of the upcoming Word Fair being held between 5th and 15th March

Ben Haggarty performing ‘Epic of Gilgamesh’

11/03/2015        8–10pm        Sydenham High School           £10/£8 concs

Tickets (£10/£8 Concs) can be purchased here

Back by popular demand, renowned storyteller Ben Haggarty returns to Sydenham to present his award-winning retelling of the Epic of Gilgamesh at Sydenham High School. Ben Haggarty’s unscripted and physical performance is packed with passion and quick–witted humour. This is a startling offering from a pioneering master of contemporary storytelling.

Gilgamesh, the story of a bored tyrant ruling a city so beautiful that even the Gods choose to make it their home, makes for a beguiling exploration into the nature of power; the search for eternal life; the threat of apocalypse, and the deepest secrets of the gods.
