Snail Tales co-founders Amy and Chip were performing together again on Sunday, as they appeared at a LightCraft party in Suffolk – celebrating All Hallow’s Eve with stories, crafts and songs about light beating darkness.
They were joined by fabulous face-painter Emma, who made sure there was plenty of glitter to go round, and delighted the children with her individual designs.
The songs included some Sunday School golden oldies, but the instrument Chip played was both ancient and modern: it was the first public outing for Aelfgifu, the Anglo-Saxon lyre which has been made for the upcoming performances of The First King of England... in a Dress!
An electro-acoustic lyre was the perfect accompaniment to an event which combined traditional pumpkin-carving and donut-bobbing activities with a dragon story, dozens of LED candles, and a parody of Take That's Shine.
