Storytime for adults

  • Wednesday 1 February, from 2.30pm to 3.30pm

Surrey Libraries are delighted to welcome celebrated actors, Jill Meager and Robert Blackwood for a special storytime for adults. Listen to some delightful short stories which will entertain you, thrill and maybe even surprize you over tea and refreshments in a convivial library setting.

The event forms part of the National Storytelling Week which runs through late January and early February 2023 and is a Body in the Library Event run by Surrey County Council in association with the Friends of Hersham Library.

Jill Meager is an established film and television actress and her credits include "Miss Marple: 4:50 from Paddington" as Lucy Eylesbarrow, "Goodbye Mr Chips" as Katherine and "Hannay" as Eleanor Mendoza as well as appearances in "Taggart" and "Wilfred and Eileen". In addition to acting, Jill Meager now works as a painter and illustrator.

Robert Blackwood is a film, television and radio actor and played Captain Angus Watson in the original West End cast of "The Two Worlds of Charlie F" (Theatre Royal Haymarket/National Tour) and is the driving force behind "The Gin Chronicles" vintage, radio-style comedy series. His most recent radio was as the Tour Guide in the award-winning adaptation of "I, Robot" (B7 Media/BBC Radio 4).
