The Wessex Tale Tellers present Alfred “King of Wessex” …..The Man who tamed the Vikings. The Story of the strange boyhood and youth of one young prince from hereabouts who grew to become such a canny King that when all seemed to be lost he could raise an army in secret to finally conquer the Viking invaders..and then ..befriend them for life. How did that happen 1200 years ago? Like the Bards of old, who wove tapestries in the mind from words riding on the sound of harp strings, Taprisha and Wendy….”The Wessex Tale Tellers” will take you back to a time of drama, intrigue and great upheaval right here in the green hills of Wessex. Sit back and enjoy a tale well told. Taprisha, founder member of the Wessex Tale Tellers, is a professional performance storyteller. She brings back the joy of being transported to other times and places through her passionate love for the spoken word. Wendy is a harpist form Hampshire with years of performing in halls and at folk festivals all over Wessex.
