Beeston Tales - Nordic Stories


At Church hall, The Church of the Assumption

Price £6.5 - £8
Times 12:30 - 22:00

Nordic Tales

Frozen forests, witches and shape-shifters, dancing spirits, and the Beginning of All Things.

There's plenty to fear and wonder at, north of the tree-line, off the top edge of the map, where drunks and sages and ancient beasts trade bawdy songs and magic runes. If you want to make it back safe and sane, you'll need a guide, so follow in the frozen footsteps of Sarah Liisa Wilkinson. And goodness, bring a coat. 

Sarah is a storyteller who delights audiences with her always engaging, energetic and playful performance style. She has a particular interest in following her Finnish roots, having collected many folktales and myths of Finland and other Nordic lands.


Also featuring tales from your hosts, music, fun and frolics.


On the door: £8 on the door on the night, attending live.

£6.50 in advance, attending live. On sale here, but only until the morning of the gig. (If you are looking for this ticket option and can't find it, and it is the afternoon of the day of the performance, you're too late! Come along anyway, tickets on the door as described above.)

Doors 19:00 for a 19:30 start.

VENUE! We'll be meeting in the Church Hall, 25 Foster Avenue, Beeston, NG9 1AE, a short walk up from Beeston Tram Stop or down from Beeston Library. Parking available at the venue.

CAFE! - The great folks from Dog & Bean will be serving tea, coffee and home baked treats. Bring Your Own Bottle if you fancy something stronger.

DAY OF THE MONTH - It's the 3rd Wednesday, get it in your diary!


If you're unable to join us in person, there's now an option for you to watch along from home. However, we're upfront that mobile reception at the venue is sometimes inconsistent. (Our current set up involves three different mobile devices on separate networks.) This is reflected in our slightly reduced ticket prices for the online offering. Two kinds of tickets are available for online viewing, either select "Attend online - paying" which will set you back £5 per device, and an "Attend online - discount"... which is free. We know times are harder for some people than others right now, and we'd much rather have you with us than not.

So do come and join us. When you purchase the online ticket, you'll be sent the link. We'll fire out an email on the night of the performance as well, just to make sure you don't miss it. Please don't share these links around. The event will be brought to you by Zoom - It's not tricky. You'll want to download it in advance, which you can do by clicking the link to join ahead of the event.

Big thanks to Caron from PCM Creatives for making this livestream possible. Please note, your receipt will also contain Caron's contact details in case you have any trouble on the night.

Beeston Tales is a not-for-profit community organisation, with all proceeds from events going to support traditional storytelling in Beeston and the surrounding area.

There is a hypnotic feel to the tales: you’re back round that prehistoric campfire again, rapt. – Matt Turpin, LeftLion.
