Once upon a time... In a galaxy far, far away... Roll up, roll up for all the twisted fairy tales your mum never read you! On Tuesday 11th March at the Wheatsheaf we encountered frogs and dragons, heroes and myths, Grimm tales and (un)happy endings. A packed audience paid up a paltry £3, listened, drank and dreamed. If you missed the night or want to know what the fuss is about, our newly available podcasts are available on this site with the accompanying texts. Now you cannot say we don't try and make it easy for you...
