Tales from the Treehouse - Episode 15 – Beowulf and the Dragon
Beowulf is an Old English epic poem, set in Scandinavia and written around 1000 years ago. We’ve split this story into 2 parts – today's episode concludes the story of Beowulf, when he confronts his nemesis - a Dragon who threatens the peace of his 50 years reign.
This story is the first time that a Dragon Slayer appears in English literature! There’s been plenty more since – can you think of any?

Told by Ben Lindsey-Clark, Tales from the Treehouse invite you to be swept away by your own imagination!
Stories that we listen to (rather than watch) are immersive and engaging. The listeners' imagination is free to draw its own imagery and create its own world, inspiring future interaction with the story and its characters.
Since we're working from home for a while - quite a challenge for a theatre company! - there will be plenty more stories coming! Please subscribe to our blog to keep up to date with the latest episode!
