" ONCE UPON A TIME...

Far away and just as long ago...

Here's a story I heard tell..."

"The storytelling was excellent, the children were utterly delighted."
 
The National Literacy Trust

I love sharing tales from my extensive repertoire, whether traditional or new to families and adults, either indoors, outside or virtually at festivals, fairs, fetes, museums, family days, charity events, libraries; anywhere a story needs to be told.
 
Whether you are an individual, event organiser, charity or corporate organisation, I can offer bespoke interactive storytelling for your event and I am always happy to find stories that match your theme. Come rain or shine, it's wonderful to have storytelling as part of the line up.
 
I also have family storytelling shows perfect for venues and festivals.


You can catch me monthly at The Cliffs Pavilion, Southend on Sea, where I'm the resident storyteller.

"I personally felt at ease the minute you walked through the door!" 

Storytelling can also be a wonderful addition to a special family event or birthday and a great way to entertain both children and adults. I'm happy to create bespoke storytelling to match the occasion or theme of your day.

WHAT PEOPLE SAY

Hampstead Garden Residents Association

You were absolutely fantastic.

The children were mesmerised!

I had so much fun listening to you.

Kiwi Productions

Loved your contribution to the day- the kids too which is the most important thing. Thanks so much.

Alternative Lowestoft

Festival

Your stories were wonderful and so many people were completely engrossed in them, whether they were children on picnic blankets, parents on benches or passers-by who stopped in their tracks. You really helped us to bring the arts to people who may not go out to seek it!

Private Family Event

Your storytelling was  perfect for our family Christmas party.

The children had great fun and loved the stories & the adults did too!

Molly had the BEST time at her party, and when I ask what the best bit was, without hesitation, she beamed and said "I loved the story!"
