Beefeater's Story Beast

Gin brand Beefeater will host two intimate performances from 'Story Beast' at its Kennington distillery this weekend. The ‘Beefeater Tale Spin’ sessions make up the fourth installment of the brand's London Tonic Series, and will see John Henry Falle playing the immortal wizard ‘The Story Beast’, a show featured at last year’s Edinburgh Festival. The event will take inspiration from Britain’s ancient oral story-telling tradition, and will entertain the audience as they are taken on a journey through mythical tales and ancient rituals.
