About the Event

About the show...

The story of Sigurd is over a thousand years old, and is one of gods, dragons, intrigue, adventure, magic, and murder. Drawn from Norse and Teutonic traditions, award winning storyteller Jason Buck brings to life the legend that inspired Tolkien and Wagner (amongst others) in their own great fantasy epics.

This is the story of a man, born to be a hero, but with the faults and failings of an everyday person.

Age suitability: Adults and older children (10+)

About Jason...

Jason has been a performer most of his adult life, including gurning, comedy and sword swallowing, but his passion lies in stories - there's nothing like getting lost in a story, the pictures in your head are better than film. Jason has written and illustrated five collections of his own stories, and won prizes in storytelling competitionsDrawing on traditional favourites and introducing new ideas, Jason's stories are told in the oldest and best ways – as live performances, for modern audiences and he has performed across the UK and mainland Europe, blending traditional and contemporary motifs, vocal sound effects and pure, unadulterated fantasy.

"Jason Buck is a man made of myth, magic and mead. His stories are filled with adventure, his beard is full of unexpected twists and his tankard filled with a poet's brew. Sit around the fire and listen to his tales - you won't be disappointed", Abbie (Sussex)
