Story-telling couple to stop off in CRI area

A story-telling couple will be entertaining people with tales and music at the National Memorial Arboretum in September.
Sophia Collins and Ross Winter, from Nottingham, are walking the length of the River Trent as part of a project celebrating the river through a mixture of stories and music.
Beginning at Biddulph Moor, Staffordshire on 1st September and ending at Trent Falls, Lincs on 21st Sept, Sophia and Ross will walk ten miles a day, taking in 19 places along the route, including the National Memorial Arboretum on September 6 at 2pm. At each stop, the team will put on a performance of music and storytelling, and then invite the audience to share their own stories.
The journey will be recorded on their website, which they'll be updating as they go, with photos, blogposts and recordings of people's stories. Sophia says: “We're like wandering medieval bards, but with laptops and iPhones.” They are performing in all sorts of places, from pubs and village halls, to universities and wildlife centres. A full list of venues, and a map of the route can be found on their website http://talesfromtheriver.wordpress.com
