Storytellers at Eden will be telling tall tales throughout the day on March 20 as part of a global celebration of the art of oral storytelling.

World Storytelling Day is aimed at getting as many people as possible to tell and listen to stories in as many languages and at as many places as possible.

Eden is one of the few places on the planet that stages live storytelling every day, with its team of pollinators inspiring visitors with their stories, singing and acting.

On World Storytelling Day there’ll be special storytelling sessions in the Mediterranean Biome on the top of every hour, from 10am to 4pm.

Di Mullis, pollination team member, said: “Eden is a unique venue in that we do storytelling every day at noon and 2pm.

“We wanted to do something special on World Storytelling Day so we’re going to be telling some cultural tales, funny tales, scary tales and some new tales about freaky plants.

“There’ll be something for everyone, children and adults, and we’d like to hear your stories too.”

All storytelling is included in the price of admission to Eden. For more information go to
