Katy Cawkwell has been storytelling for 20 years across Britain and beyond, and as part of Lancaster Arts City’s First Fridays she is set to visit the county next month.

Katy will tell the epic tale of Hallgerd on Friday February 6 from 8pm at The Storey in the city.

Beautiful, fierce and deadly, Hallgerd is not a woman to be taken lightly, ripping through husbands like a falcon through its prey. But has she met her match in Viking hero Gunnar? These gripping episodes from the Icelandic Saga of Njal are in turn darkly comic and tragically romantic, offering a fascinating glimpse into pagan society in the land of fire and ice. Aimed at adults, unsuitable for under 12s.

Two halves of approximately 45 mins each.
