Two stories will be told outdoors (and moved inside only if very wet) and the others will be inside, around an open fire, which may be smoky. There will be space to sit down and you will go around in a small group.

In one location you will be offered warm apple juice and warm flapjack to enjoy whilst listening to the story.
