The Trickster

What is a trickster and where do we find them? In this talk we will look at trickster figures of world myth and folklore and see what they have in common and how they differ from culture to culture.

Raven, Coyote, Anansi, Hare, Puck, Ekwensu, Reynard, Loki and Ivan the Fool to name but a few of the tricksters we may meet.

Tales will be told, songs will be sung.

This event is held in the upstairs room of The Electric Elephant Cafe where fine food and drinks may be consumed before, during and after the event.

Suggested donation is £5/3 or you can come for free no questions asked.

We will be running an audio feed from the upstairs room so you can listen downstairs while you are eating.
