The Quest For Tales of Britain
Greetings! As today's Folklore Thursday theme is 'quests, missions and adventures', this is the simplest blog we have had to post hitherto. We may have told the story of our quest to put an all-new anthology of British folktales on bookshelves in text form in the past, but now we can see what a long quest it has been – and our adventure is far from over...
Six years ago, a jumble of retold folktales labouring under the misleading but terribly alliterative title of Brother Bernard's Big Book of British Bedtime Ballads was in search of a publisher, any publisher...
Two years ago, an official trailer was launched with Unbound...
And now, in 2019, the book is available at last. Brother Bernard has been travelling up and down the island telling his tales – once you've popped into your local indie bookshop and asked about getting copies in, why not look up our Live page to see if there's a Tales show near you, or even invite us to your town for a show of your own?
Long may our quest continue!
