Storyteller recounts tales from Holy Island to raise funds for church
Guided tours of Holy Island are being offered this summer for donations in aid of a local church.
Chris Hudson, a local Reader in Tweedmouth parish, is leading the walking and story-telling tours to raise funds for St Mary’s Parish Church.
The tours recount tales of refugees fleeing in panic, violent struggles for the throne, powerful faith, mind-bending miracles, modern archaeology, glittering swords and even a cuddly duck.
Chris said: “As a storyteller, I’ve always loved narratives of Northern Saints like Oswald, Aidan and Cuthbert, and long nurtured a mad ambition to retell them in their original stunning locations.
"The parish church on Holy Island relies so much on donations from pilgrims who obviously haven’t been coming over the last 12 months, so my guided walks are one way to fill that gap. My storytelling style’s a bit Horrible History-meets-Blackadder, but visitors say they learn a lot on the way.”
