Tales by Torchlight - Tales of the Gods

As darkness falls across the landscape of Sutton Hoo join our Anglo-Saxon storytellers as they share tales of the Germanic gods.

  • Booking essential

With giants, trickery, beasts and heroic deeds the Tales of the Gods will entertain all ages. You will be led by torchlight across the landscape of Sutton Hoo and encounter along the way Anglo-Saxon storytellers waiting to share these epic tales with you. There will be two performances each night. The first will be from 6.00pm - 7.30pm and the second will be from 6.45pm - 8.15pm. Hot and cold drinks and flapjack/brownies (gluten free) are included at the end. Gates open 15 minutes before each performance.
