Travel to the extremes of the Finnish landscape with songs, adventure and the stories of Kalevala – Finland’s national epic – equal to Homer’s Iliad and Odyssey, or the old English Beowulf.

Leading UK storyteller Nick Hennessey and three virtuoso Finnish musicians make these 2000 year old traditional stories come alive with a touch of offbeat fun, enchantment and evocative music that moves between dancing flutes, infectious rhythms and hauntingly beautiful sung melodies.

Experience Kalevala returned to its oral roots in this dynamic, intimate and surprising performance.

“They conjure up the landscape of the Karelian lands; we hear the birds singing, creatures stirring … and the ice breaking as the seasons turn… we have been held entranced.” – Wales Arts Review
