Room in June 2013


On Saturday 29 June, 2013 the ACT Storytellers Guild held their annual Room in June evening of stories and music at Curtin Uniting Church Hall.
 
Approximately 50 guests attended, warmed and mellowed by Tom's aromatic mulled wine. At interval guests were treated to a buffet of a wide selection of yummy treats provided by the Guild Committee.  
 
The program this year included short stories from the Canberra centenary celebration storytelling program held in Commonwealth Park in March this year, giving the audience a glimpse of yesteryear from Canberra's beginnings, through to the recent Canberra fires. Entertaining, moving and informative stories were delivered by Mollie, Elizabeth, Vonny, Cherie, Rose and Mary. 
 
After supper the audience was entertained by Brian's somewhat disturbing traditional Inuit Story; Cherie's at times unsettling (the vivid description of his bride) English Folk  Tale about the marriage of Sir Gawain; Eric's clever "play" from The Sentimental Bloke; and Ros's account of the challenges of a "wild child" aunt. Ros finished the evening's program with an audience-participation performance about The Raiders humble beginnings to their development into a not-so-humble winning machine.  
 
A special thank you to The McGurgans, whose music contributed significantly to the night's entertainment and rounded out the evening beautifully.
