FRIDAY 28th JUNE AT 7.30pm

£10 per ticket including refreshments


Nick Hennessey is an internationally acclaimed storyteller, playwright, folk singer,

song wirte and musician.  He has told stories for more than 20 years,

performing at venues as varied as the Royal Northern College of Music

to the top of Skiddaw; Alderley Edge Methodist Church to

the Royal Albert Hall.


Nick grew up in Alderley Edge and retains a strong link with the area.


Nick will tell a selection of stories.  Each story will help us to explore how we cope

with stories that don't end the way we want them.  The vicar will then ask Nick a series

of questions before throwing it open to the floor.  We will ask Nick for an encore or two

at the end.


Happy Ever After?

Why do we insist that stories have a happy ending.

Do we get more out of stories that don't have happy endings?
