I love telling stories which make me laugh. Stories which I know can captivate an audience. Stories which touch the soul.
I love telling stories to an audience of children and parents. I love to engage with the audience, making faces, noises, movements, dancing, answering back, playing silly instruments.
I love offering children the chance to sit in the storytelling chair and tell stories themselves to an enraptured audience, often for the first time.
I love being with an audience in a relaxed setting, telling traditional tales of wonder and ancient wisdom, with the power to reveal new paths and transform lives, as they have mine.
I tell stories at Schools and Libraries, Children’s Centres and Nature Centres, Weddings and Family Occasions, Rotary Clubs, Corporate Events and Private Parties. Even a Halloween gig in Windsor Central shopping arcade. I am Resident Storyteller at Dance Camps and Festivals.
I hold a CRB Certificate. As a Member of Equity, I have Public Liability Insurance.
