Giles Abbott: "Mongan's Frenzy"

Giles Abbott "A wild Irish tale featuring love, loss, humour and venomous sheep.

So is it that we dream then wake to life or is this life the dream form which we one day awaken? Mongan could tell you. Mongan, the son of a god, is a man who lives in many worlds but can only learn wisdom in this world, the herd way.

Giles Abbott has been a professional storyteller since 2000 performing at schools, Arts Centres, clubs and festivals throughout the UK and internationally. His storytelling is distinguished by his poetic use of language and by his commanding presence and rich speaking voice.
He's also been one of the storytellers we've been hoping to book for a couple of years, so come and grab this rare chance of hearing him in Northampton!

Audiences have said, of “Mongan’s Frenzy”:
“It was fabulous, really enjoyed it! Time stood still.”
“There are many Storytellers who talk of emotion and love. Giles is one of a few great Storytellers whose skill creates a space where you feel emotion and love as the story unfolds and the characters live with you in the moment. A most nourishing and enjoyable telling from a master wordsmith and amazing Storyteller.” Trish, Surrey Storytellers

The New Home

Delapre Abbey is the lovely place so many Northamptonians tend to forget about, tucked away off the London Road in Delapre Park.
From February 2018, we're meeting mainly in the Billiards Room or the Dining Room in the main building. (Follow signs to "Cafe" and you'll get there!)
The whole setting is a gorgeous place, and it belongs to our town, so it's great to be there now, as it's recently had a mighty refurbishment. Details are at and on their Facebook page

Details of how to locate it are on our map page
Once you're at the car park, follow the new path to the right, through the gate, leading across the front of the building, and you should see signs to the Cafe. It does get a bit dark round the corner of the building!
There's also a bus stop at the end of the drive. It's nearly 1/4 mile from the road, if you're walking. ..It's still 1/4 mile if you're not....
