Storytelling with Alex Ultradish
12.25 - 12.40pm, 1.30 - 2pm & 4.15 - 4.45pm
Alex Ultradish is a storyteller, MC, word weaver & expert talker, she is as unique as her name. Alex will make you feel as comfortable as your favourite arm chair, make you laugh like a friend who knows you too well and maybe even make you cry. (Disclaimer crying is an infrequent reaction to listening to Alex tell stories) Listeners from nine weeks old to nine hundred years old are enthralled by her. Entrenched in tradition intrigued by the future she will take you to places you may never have imagined. All you need is your magic carpet and she will provide the rest. Think pirates with sat navs, queens that disco dance after too much Dubonet, talking cats and fairies Disney would never recognise. This is the world of the Ultradish, go on, step in.
2.20 - 3.45pm
