Where do you begin to tell the story of Scotland? With the myths, the legends and the battles? Or by building a castle in your granny’s back green?
this story is told by Andy Cannon, formerly of Wee Stories and one of Scotland’s finest storytellers, accompanied by composer and musician Wendy Weatherby.
Andy takes us on a time travelling adventure with his grandparents through Scotland’s past to piece together the myriad of Kings, Queens, friends and foes that make up our nation’s story (and unearths just why our mountains are so small on the way!).
A great family show for all generations.
