Any event booking with Fireside Folktales includes:
- A company of professional actors to perform your chosen play.
- A beautifully decorated 8m diameter bell tent and matting. (If you prefer, we can instead perform at a venue of your choice, e.g. at your wedding venue or corporate party.)
- Seating inside the tent for an audience of up to 45.
- Self-contained 3.5m diameter props and costume/changing room tent.
- Anything from one to five performances of your choice of our original plays, depending on the length of booking.
- All props and costumes.
- Atmospheric lighting for evening performances – no electricity required.
- Complete set up and taking down of tents.
- The option of including a campfire in our mediaeval-style firepit, along with marshmallows for you and your guests to toast over it before you enter the tent.*
As well as our usual selection of tales for all ages and occasions, we are also able to create a bespoke event, writing a new piece of work specifically for you, if we are given sufficient notice.
Should you wish to discuss a booking of any sort - performances, workshops, or both, at an appropriate venue of your choice - please don't hesitate to drop us a line at email@example.com and we will get back to you as soon as possible. All bookings vary and each enquiry will receive a unique quote, tailored to your specific needs and depending on your particular requirements. No event is too small or unusual – if you are interested in exploring the options, please get in touch!
