Master storyteller, Hazel Lennox, invites you to join her for an hour of’ Tales of Transformation’ on Sunday March 15 starting at 4 p.m. at Serious Coffee. Hazel will be telling stories for adults and older children, including The Seven Swans, a tale by Hans Christian Anderson.
“This is just such a great story, chock full of wonderful images, a tale of magic, love, loss, and ultimately, of course, a winning over adversity.” says Hazel. “The wonderful thing about storytelling is that each of us has a unique experience and understanding, yet we collectively share something at the same time.”
Hazel has told stories for the past 30 years and her belief in the power of story to influence our lives for the better, has only grown. She has told tales in Britain , the States, Canada and India.
“Quite a few of my stories were learned ‘at the knee’ as we say, which means I’ve never seen them in print. I’m delighted to be part of the revival of this most ancient ritual for learning how to be human, having fun, teaching – there’s so much involved in storytelling it’s amazing,” Hazel says with a grin.

It’s a great opportunity to relax into another world, away from everyday worries and concerns, plus support a local entertainer and cafe, offering a wide range of drinks and eats to enjoy while listening.
