Trolls Come in All Sizes- Scandinavian Folklore

Talks - History; Talks - Arts and Culture

Event Description

Trolls are the most prolific creatures in Scandinavian Folklore, but they are only part of the rich traditional beliefs, customs, and superstitions, which includes the story of The Three Billy Goats Gruff and many more. Folklore, an oral history preserved by people in an attempt to give meaning to their lives and surroundings provides a fascinating look at old Scandinavian beliefs.

Meet The Speaker, Sandy

Sandy Leong is an historian, passionate about bringing history to life and is a lively and entertaining speaker. She has a popular series of entertaining, light hearted talks on general historical subjects. However she specialises in the Tudors, an exciting time in the country as it was changing fast; and in the Viking period, who are much more than the stereotype of raiders in horned helmets. She is an international, professional speaker, and published author.

Preparing for the Event

For the best experience, you will need to have Zoom downloaded onto your computer. Please ensure you're connected to broadband/wifi rather than using your mobile phone connection (3G/4G).

We also recommend that pets are either calmly sitting on your lap or in another room, and any refreshments you may require are within your reach!
