“Tree of Light” at Lighthouse Poole

White Rabbit’s Bernadette Russell is telling her story The Tree of Light at a Wintertime Event at the Lighthouse Poole on Sunday 27th November. It’s a folktale for the 21st century, a reminder of the power of hope and love in troubled times.

“A very long time ago, this land was all forest. At the heart of the forest was a very special tree, that everyone spoke of, but only a few had seen: the Tree of Light. It is said that this tree is the keeper of all our hopes and dreams… it is said that in the darkest hours of night as we lay dreaming, something magical happened…

But this was all a long time ago. The forest is no longer here. The forest  is only a distant memory to the eldest citizens, the forest’s whose whispering trees can still be heard. Where there were trees, there are roads, houses, shops…so what becomes of our hopes and dreams now? And what happened to the Tree of Light?”

Come and find out, and listen to this magical mid winter story, full of forest creatures familiar and unfamiliar, night time adventures and poetry. Plus you will be invited to add your own stars to the Tree of Light, and the opportunity to have your wishes come true.
