Building Imaginary Worlds : Life Made Magic – Change of venue –

Following her week-long residency at Talliston House and Gardens, Britain’s most extraordinary house, writer and storyteller Glenys Newton chats to author John Tarrow about his own extraordinary twenty-five year journey transforming a semi- detached ex-council house in Great Dunmow into a wonderland of inspirational rooms and locations, each set in a different time and place.

This event will now take place in the Storytelling Tent due to circumstances beyond our control!
