No Jackanory as story telling event comes to the Royal stage

I'm Hans Christian Andersen
I'm Hans Christian Andersen

The work of story teller Hans Christian Andersen is bought to life at Northampton’s Royal & Derngate.

In a bittersweet trawl through the love stories we read, the ones we tell, and the ones we never finish. I’m Hans Christian Andersen can be seen on Saturday January 30.

Rachel Rose Reid was raised on a hybrid of immigrant oral tradition, English folk music and concrete jungle. 

As a storyteller and spoken word artist she regularly bridges between all three worlds.

She has been Storyteller in Residence for Dickens Museum, the Saison Poetry Library, the English Folk Dance and Song Society, and has written and performed commissions for Billy Bragg, BBC Radio 3, Old Vic New Voices and the Royal Shakespeare Company.

Giving a fascinating insight into where the renowned fairytale writer found his inspiration (often from his own unrequited love), Rachel takes to the Royal stage to perform I’m Hans Christian Andersen at 7.45pm.

Tickets are £11. To book call 01604 624811 or
