Lore of the Wild is a series of 12 pre-recorded stories accompanied by a beautiful soundtrack. They were co-created by Bernadette Russell and Sophie Austin.

For Lesnes Abbey Woodland Festival, this artist led story walk is offered for free!

Join us on an enchanting walk and after each story, we will invite moments to reflect and celebrate as we gather in this ancient woodland to hear the stories and consider our relationship with the land during this time of harvest.

As you walk, you’ll hear stories from Crow, Squirrel, Ant, Fox, Fungi, Pond, Chalk and even the Wind herself, as they weave together tales which connect the woods to the whole world and beyond. Look out for the faces in the trees, dance with the mighty Oaks, gain wisdom from the Green Man, walk to the beat of Lesnes’s ancient secret buried heart and rediscover your own true wildness.

Lore of the Wild was created by Bernadette Russell & Sophie Austin with sound design by Hannah Marshall and illustration / design by Melanie Smith
Cast: Charlie Folorunsho, Harriet Kershaw, Natasha Magigi, Bernadette Russell, Thierry Spall

Commissioned through a partnership between Metal and London Borough of Bexley for Estuary 2021.
