Storyteller and Entertainer Nick Hennessey

As part of the 2017 Tampere Day Program, Finland 100 and the Tampere Finnish-British Society's 70th Anniversary celebration, the renowned British singer and storyteller Nick Hennessey and his wife Emily presented an entertaining afternoon show starting at 1500 at the Laterna Restaurant on Puutarhakatu 11 in the center of Tampere.

The event also featured Laterna's traditional English Afternoon Cream Tea, a buffet of cucumber sandwiches, scones with jam and whipped cream, and a choice of Black or Earl Grey tea, with live piano music.

Nearly 90 participants registered and joined the Afternoon Tea, with an additional dozen or so who came later for Nick and Emily Hennessey's performance. The audience of over 100 was a new attendance record for a Tampere Finnish-British Society event.

Nick and Emily Hennessey are well-known international storytellers and entertainers. They have been frequent visitors to Finland, where their stories from the Kalevala especially have been popular. See Nick's website for more information.
