She will return to perform her popular adults-only night again at the biennial Festival of Story at Queen's Birthday weekend. Free entertainment: Tanya Batt, left, captivates the kids at the Ostend market during the 2010 Festival of Story. Organisers of the bien- nial Festival of Story are calling for friends to register their support by purchasing an evening of adult entertainment. The seventh biennial Festival of Story will run over Queen s Birthday weekend, from June 2 to 4. It is an event that storyteller Tanya Batt says has made her not only world famous on Waiheke but also a storyteller of inter- national repute. Most of the sessions during the festival are free or entry is by koha. This is why the sup- port of our friends is vital, to continue to make the festival access- ible to all children, Ms Batt says. She produced her own version of 1001 Arabian Nights two years ago, with guests encouraged to dress up in Arabian attire. A donation of $300 this year will give friends of the festival admission and dinner for two at an evening of adult enter- tainment starring Ms Batt called Tanya Tells Tales. It will be at the Goldie Room on June 2 at 7pm. The Storytelling Trust aims to explore and develop human potential primarily through the mediums of storytelling and story making, Ms Batt says. This is achieved through a series of workshops, performan- ces and events for chil- dren and adults that are held at the Story Centre and at various locations throughout the island.
