"If you want your children to be smart, tell them stories. If you want them to be brilliant,
tell them more stories."
- Albert Einstein
"Thank you for a thoroughly entertaining day of storytelling. It was lovely to hear staff comparing which stories you had told and with which props! All our children from 4-11 years old were absolutely engaged!"
South Avenue Primary School, Kent
I’m passionate about inspiring young minds through the power of stories and igniting their imaginations to become enthusiastic story creators and confident communicators.
Storytelling is embedded in the National Curriculum from Early Years right through to Key Stage 2 and sits perfectly alongside both English, Drama and PSHE delivery at Key Stage 3 and above.
I work with pre-school through to Key Stage 4 and in Special Needs education both telling and creating stories through interactive performances and storytelling and creative writing workshops. I also offer virtual storytelling visits and pre-records.

All my sessions encourage participation from the children and often involve a whole host of colourful props and puppets, especially for early years. I have an extensive repertoire of stories and all can be themed to support topics across the curriculum.
I'm also happy to do whole year or school assemblies, just send me a message to discuss.
I also offer CPD to teachers keen to extend their storytelling skills and creative practice within the classroom. If you would like more information on these sessions do get in contact and

Hannah was amazing and kept the children fully engaged.
Hamstel Junior School
From the moment she began, our children were transfixed as Hannah skilfully drew the children into the story. The children left the session having been thoroughly entertained and inspired by the magical tour de force that is Hannah the Storyteller.

Thank you once again for this afternoon. The pupils adored it, as did the members of support staff!

To see how engaged they were was a joy.
