This event is led by Alison Williams-Bailey, the Artistic Director of Root and Branch Theatre company. She will perform scenes from her new show Holda and the King of Goose Island which tells the story of Pulborough Brooks winter weather landscape via the ancient Christmas Yuletide legends of Mother Holle, the original Mother Goose.
