Settle in after lunch and prepare to be swept away by a series of enchanting tales inspired by food, featuring local young creatives, and led by expert local storyteller Marcus Pibworth. Each story told will be inspired by a different local food item, exploring the cultural, folkloric, personal, historic, and ecological. 

Ahead of the showcase, contributors are working with Marcus and local writer Lily Sequoia to develop their pieces and prepare their performances. One not to miss.
