A Story-Concert: “When Éire was a forest”

by Iwan Kushka-Küchenberg

‘To be Irish is to know that, in the end, the world will break your heart’ – Iwan KK brings his very personal take on all things Irish in his ongoing collaboration with musicians Becky Doe (violin) and William Benzies (guitar).

Expect some hauntingly beautiful Irish tunes wafting through the Glade, songs full of fire and peat smoke, and a hearty story conjured up by this highly original Trio.

To celebrate the ‘International Day of Forests’ and ‘World Storytelling Day’ we TWP have teamed up with this magnificent trio and are showcasing a spectacular fireside storytelling event and musical concert in the Glade, enveloped by the woods be prepared to be captivated and enchanted.

Ticket Price: Adult £6 / Child £5 (12 and under)

BOOK HERE (limited numbers)

The Glade Bar (open from 5.30pm) will be serving hot drinks, homemade soup and our much loved woodland-made waffles (pre-orders also taken for the interval)

“ As we drew on Ireland from the sea the country seemed like an unending forest. Far as the eye could reach there were trees, and from these came the unceasing singing of birds. To our wind-tormented ears, it seemed as if we were driving on Paradise”


Note: In case of any extremities of weather the event will take place inside the Nest
