Hunting the Giant’s Daughter‏

Hunting 2

A TALE of magic, music, love and the legends of King Arthur is to be
woven in Lancaster.

Hunting the Giant’s Daughter is a lively and uplifting evening of
storytelling and music, based on the oldest surviving Arthurian legend
from The Mabinogion, a collection of stories based on Welsh narrative

Currently on a national tour, the production is showing as part of
litfest on Saturday October 24 at 6.30pm at the Storey Auditorium,
Meeting House Lane, Lancaster.

Tickets are £7.50 (£6.00 concessions) and can be booked online at or by calling the Lancaster Visitor Information Centre
on 01524 582394.

The story is created and told by internationally renowned storyteller
Michael Harvey, with music specially written for the piece by composer
Stacey Blythe (keyboard, harp, accordion) and singer Lynne Denman.

In the tale, Culhwch is destined to fall instantly in love with Olwen,
a woman he has never seen or heard of and who no-one knows how to

Through skilled storytelling and atmospheric music we follow his
fascinating quest to find her, as our young hero enlists all the help
he can muster to solve his quest.

Suitable for adults and older children aged 12+, the piece has been
performed in Wales, Ireland and Holland, and offers a night of
fantastic, fresh storytelling and enchanting music in the company of
one of the finest love stories ever told.
