once upon a time...
Over the last Ten years, I have become established as the most unique and engaging Storyteller in the North East, and my many character's, have become extremely popular. It is significant that in the many schools I have worked with the children can remember all the stories I have ever told them – It has been said that I can enthral a group of children like no-one else!
Just Add a sprinkle of imagination
My stories are varied and are never read from books or scripts. I specialise in Pirate tales, Lighthouse keeper lunch, Grace Darling, Katie Morag, The Gruffalo, Alice in Wonderland and seaside past and present. My stories link with KS1 & 2 stages of the national curriculum. Other stories come from all times and places; folk tales; spooky tales; myths and legends from all around the world, and many stories of my own on a wide range of subjects. The work I do aims to encourage listening and speaking skills, concentration and an understanding of narrative.
I cover all areas of the North East from Northumberland to North Yorkshire. I've also been known to travel further afield.

Sessions can be booked by the hour, half day or full day.
There is nothing more valuable than nurturing a love of stories in children to encourage reading, writing and self expression. No one does this better than a good storyteller.
