Drawn from oral traditions, fairy tales distil our dreams and fears into stories of magic and transformation. This year, we celebrate 40 years since the publication of Angela Carter's The Bloody Chamber. The short story collection exposes the dark, hidden truths of traditional stories, creating fairy tales for the modern age and the modern reader.

Tina Chiang, Paapa Essiedu, Toby Jones, Amara Karan and Imogen Stubbs complete a stellar line-up for this event which has been inspired by Carter's collection, reading stories inspired by ancient tales. From Salman Rushdie's distinctive take on a classic Arabian Nights tale to Marlon James' visceral riff on African folklore, at the heart of the event is an abridged version of 'Company of Wolves', taken from The Bloody Chamber collection.

Featuring specially commissioned stories from Daisy Johnson and Sharlene Teo, drawing from English and Singaporean traditions and accompanied by live music performed by Angharad Davies (violin/ vocals), Aine Dwyer (harp/vocals) Lee Paterson (electronics) the event will take audiences across the world, giving new resonance to timeless narratives.
