Come wander through the stories and history of East and West Sussex. Wherever you go, town and countryside, there are memories, magic and mystery lying just out of sight... and Sussex has as much folklore and myth as any place. I'll share some stories old and new from across the county, as well as facts behind them and true life tales of people who made their lives here. If you live locally, find out about the landscape outside your door; and if you're just interested, come enjoy!

We'll need five bookings minimum to go ahead. Once you book, I'll wait 'til we have enough before confirming the session. If you're interested, please tell your friends. See you soon!
