Mazed Tales

Traditional tales from South East Cornwall Stories of mermaids and giants, piskies and princesses belonging to the moors and fishing villages of Cornwall. Long ago they would have been told by wandering droll storytellers, then retold around the fire at night. Now they can be watched on a magical app in 12 short animated films. Each animation is made by a different team of animators, each tale is different…funny,scary,enchanting, surprising. Each is set in a beautiful location in the south east of Cornwall which can be found with the help of the app map.
Ideal for family story sharing and exploring.
Prepare to be aMazed.

The 12 tales featured were chosen by the communities where the stories are set as part of Mazed, a project to reconnect people with stories of place.
