The week of activites continues with the RNLI Newhaven hosting The GuestHouse Storytellers at the Lifeboat House the West Quay on Tuesday the 9th of July from 7.00pm for an optional Italian Supper, with storytelling beginning at 7.30pm.

Storytelling is the oldest form of human communication and is growing in popularity across the world. We all love to hear a good story, well told. It is a shared experience created between teller and listener and people who have attended an adult storytelling for the first time often say that they never expected it to be so vivid or moving.

The Guesthouse Storytellers is a community storytelling club for adults and has been running for seven years. It is one of the most successful storytelling clubs in the country.

Professional storyteller Jamie Crawford opens the evening of 'Snow White, Blood Red - Fairytales for Adults' and the evening promises to be enjoyable and entertaining.

Tickets are £5.00 plus £4.00 for optional Italian supper are available in advance from the Hillcrest Centre, Hillcrest Road, Newhaven BN9 9EA, or by contacting Ronda Armitage on 01825 873477 email:
