Poetry and Story-telling by Anne Lister

The Whole Tale of Jauffre - Part 1. This tale of high adventure and true love has been told and re-told many times since it was written in the 12th or 13th century, but not often in English! In celebration of Hay's Independence this will be told over two sessions. The second session is at the same time on Wednesday 4th April.
