Eels, Eagles and Unicorns: Hidden Nature in the Exeter Custom House - HOD - Online Only

Custom House Visitor Centre, Exeter, Devon, EX2 4AN
Katy Cawkwell

About

Join Quay Words with story teller Katy Cawkwell online to watch a series of digital stories inspired by the hidden nature at Exeter Custom House.

A series of short storytelling films told by Katy Cawkwell direct from the Exeter Custom House. Katy will tell myths and legends, inspired by the creatures hidden inside the Custom House – the eels in John Abbott’s ornate plaster ceiling, the unicorn in the heraldic shield in the main room and the eagles lurking within one of the stamps used to mark the bales of wool. Some of the stories have travelled a long way to be here, just like the goods that used to flow up and down the river Exe, passing through the Custom House on their journey. The films will be created especially for the Custom House for Heritage Open Days 2020.

The stories will be available here during the Heritage Open Days week: https://exetercustomhouse.org.uk/storytelling-commission/
