'Tales from the Motherland' by Peter Chand. A collection of some of Peter's favourite traditional stories, some of which he has collected from India, translated into English, and is sharing in his own unique and exciting way. Peter is Wolverhampton born and bred, but has told his stories from Southall to Singapore, Birmingham to Belfast, Amsterdam to Athens- and many a place in between. (Suitable for adults)
This will be a new collection of stories for adults.
Peter Chand is an award-winning storyteller in constant demand for his unique style of retelling tales from India. Peter has shared his stories across Britain and internationally in many countries including Norway, France, Austria, Canada, and Singapore. Born in Britain he grew up with Punjabi as his first language, and continues to travel to his motherland visiting family in the Punjab to collect folk tales, translating them into English and sharing them with his audiences.
He has recently been honoured by being chosen as one of the 100 Masters, by Creative Black Country, which celebrates creativity and excellence within the many towns and cities which make up the Black Country region.
