About this event

Chinye is an ancient Igbo story that takes us on the magical journey of a young girl who is told by her stepmother to go through the forest late at night to collect water from the river.

Along the way she meets characters that give her secrets to help her with a roaring lion or how to listen to the slithering snake. She could go home with all the treasures of Igbo land or she could lose the clothes off her back leaving her naked.

This half term, join storyteller Chinyere Nwaubani to find out what happens to Chinye.
