Save event

Join Kevin Walker on a journey... a journey that charts the rise and spread of Buddhism across the world... but also, a personal journey, of his love of Buddhist culture and values.

From a white elephant, a disfigured statue, and a monkey king, to a secret door and a mysterious tomb, “It Started with a Dream” will delight, entertain and move you.

A collection of tales taken from the Buddhist tradition. Come on a cultural and spiritual pathway that will raise your spirits and challenge your thoughts.

“It was a splendid evening, and you know yourself that our audience really enjoyed it, by their reaction, and warm applause and comments at the end.” Marion Leeper, Cambridge Storytellers.
“Thanks for a great night of storytelling last night Kevin at the Cambridge Storytellers. Until last night Buddhism seemed something far far away, but you brought it a bit closer and gave it a very human face!” Dave Tong, storyteller. 
“……thank you Kevin, for a great show!” Andrew Smith, audience member.
“It was obvious from its first outing that this set of stories from Kevin was going to be very special. Told from the heart and also very entertaining.” Honor Giles, Word of Mouth, Manchester.

Come to this event during Plymouth Apprenticeship Week to learn more about the benefits and meet those organisations that will be able to help you, as well as look at some of the key bespoke training facilities available at City College Plymouth.

Doors open 7.15pm for 7.30pm start.

Tickets on the door: £6 (students - £3). 

All welcome.

This event is supported by Plymouth University and brought to you by Liz Berg Storyteller and Writer in partnership with Plymouth Centre for Faith and Cultural Diversity.
