A SOMETIMES misunderstood character will take centre stage at a unique evening event at The Beacon Museum, Whitehaven.
Loki – A Norse god, born of giants – was often helpful but is better known for being a trickster. He has captured audiences’ imaginations from the 8th century to present day Marvel films.
This character is now the focus for an evening of storytelling and song on Saturday, August 17, led and curated by Cumbrian performer Steve Wharton.
Mr Wharton, a designated English Lake District World Heritage Site storyteller, will turn his attention to this enigmatic character, who is depicted in stone carvings in Gosforth and Kirkby Stephen.
Featuring storytelling and music, the show reveals why Loki features in so many of the Vikings’ stories and how Cumbrian funeral customs preserve a link to the god of mischief.
Visitors can expect an informal evening of Norse-themed fun, with a Viking-themed bar stocked with mead and ales alongside non-alcoholic alternatives. Doors open at 7.30pm.
Age restrictions apply, and tickets cost £8 from the Beacon Museum Facebook page or www.thebeacon-whitehaven.co.uk.
