A group of storytellers, puppet handlers, music-makers, writers and actors from Ely will tell stories and memories from around the world in aid of charity at an event next weekend.

The World Garden will present ‘Voices’ at Babylon Gallery on Saturday March 11 from 6.30pm. All proceeds will go to the work of Amnesty International.

The event will be opened with an introduction into the charity’s work, followed by an adaptation of a keynote article by Paul Joseph who writes on the question of food and passive resistance during the political struggles for freedom in South Africa.

Jean Rees-Lyons, artistic director of The Word Garden, said: “In ‘Voices’ storytellers, music-makers and puppets show us that happiness may be found where struggle for survival exists at the edge.

“In this production we aim to build new cultural connections, new hopes for harmony, new choices of those ingredients that make life happy: awareness and acceptance.”
