Storytelling

There was a time when tales were told by wandering minstrels to eager crowds in the market square... there was a time when history was passed down from parents to children through myths, legends and fabulous fables... once upon a time... therein lies a tale... are you sitting comfortably? Then I’ll begin...

I am a storyteller with a passion for entertaining. I love to make my audiences laugh, jump, sit on the edge of their seats and ultimately lose themselves in the worlds I create. Whether I’m telling terrible tales, marvellous myths or spinning good old fashioned action-packed yarns, I believe that first and foremost storytelling is fun. However it can of course be a great educational tool, an aid to reminiscence and useful in team building too.

I am experienced at storytelling for children and adults alike and have enjoyed captivating audiences at venues including:
