Tales Tattled & Told once again brings the last word to Stony Words Literary Festival and gets National Storytelling Week off to a rollicking start with Norwich storyteller Dave Tonge at Stony Stratford's Crown Inn at 7:30 pm on Sunday, 4 February 2024.

Norwich historian, author and storyteller David Tonge, the Yarnsmith of Norwich, headlines Tales Tattled & Told at the Crown Inn in Stony Stratford with 'Beguiling for Beginners, a celebration of cunning men and women, coney catching and all manner of counterfeit craftiness.'

'A lone trickster wanders the road, wearing many different disguises. Sometimes a priest, sometimes a potter, and sometimes a pedlar of wares. From pots to pardons, potions to pins, he sells them all occasionally, but always he gifts lies.'
