The Epic Weekend

Home  /  Events  /  Current Page

Come and tell the Persian epic, The Shahnameh, over a weekend in a 15th century palace in Cambridgeshire.

The Epic Weekend is back! 25 storytellers telling one epic over three days in the Claret Centre, Buckden Towers, Buckden, Cambs, near the river Ouse and Graffham Water, just off the A1.

The weekend will run from 7.00 pm Friday to 4.00 Sunday, is fully catered and costs £90 per person (£110 for a single room). We have full run of the Victorian mansion built within the walls of a ruined bishop’s palace and the 15 acre estate (including a lake and a walled garden with its own stage!) – in our opinion a perfect setting for epic.

During the weekend as a group we aim to tell the entire story, dividing it up so we have an episode each (listeners are very welcome too). We hope there will also be time for walks, chat, and enjoying the beautiful surroundings (the river Ouse runs just nearby, and Grafham Water nature reserve is also close.
