Storytelling Evening: ‘Tristan and Iseult - a Tale to Break Your Heart’

28th September 6:30pm - 8:30pm


On Friday 28th September, join The Bishop’s Palace for an evening in the atmospheric Undercroft of the medieval Palace, where storyteller Beth Webb and musician Mary Bateman will transport you back a thousand years to the ancient palace of Tintagel.

From tragic birth to spell-laden cup, via deception and joy, Tristan and Iseult’s demise is of their own making, for the lovers are never quite honest – nor do they wholly trust in King Marc’s love.  This ancient story – popular in the 12th century – was inspired by Celtic legends and became an inspiration for many forms of art, including Wagner’s great opera “Tristan and Isolde” and works by Thomas Hardy and Alfred Tennyson.

The evening will begin at 6:30pm with the first half of this compelling story. There will be an interval during which canapés and wine will be served, (included in the ticket price), then the second half of the tale will be told.

Don’t miss this fabulous opportunity to be thoroughly entertained by the ancient tradition of oral storytelling, complemented by atmospheric music to get you into the spirit of the evening.

Tickets, priced at £15.50 each, are available at The Bishop’s Palace shop and online HERE
