Eric Maddern

Eric Maddern set off aged 22 to travel round the world in two years. It took ten. The last four years were spent working in the Aboriginal communities of Central Australia – an experience which had a profound influence on him. It led to the creation of Cae Mabon, a unique eco-retreat centre in the foothills of Snowdonia. It also inspired him to become a storyteller with a special interest in unearthing the old stories of Britain. Since moving to north Wales in 1986 he has written a dozen children’s picture books, recorded a couple of CDs (Full of Life and Rare and Precious Earth) and in 2015 published Snowdonia Folktales (The History Press). Arising from this has come a new storytelling piece, Songlines of Snowdonia. He is currently working on a memoir.

Hugh Lupton

Hugh Lupton has been a central figure in the British storytelling revival for 30 years. Storytelling is in his blood – he’s the great-nephew of Arthur Ransome. Hugh tells myths, legends and folktales from many cultures, but his particular passion is for the hidden layers of the British landscape and the stories and ballads that give them voice. He has written many collections of folktales and two novels: The Ballad of John Clare(Dedalus, 2012) and The Assembly of the Severed Head (Propolis, 2018), which tells the story of the making of The Mabinogi.
