Email: Telephone:07941 020505
I am a highly experienced professional storyteller based in Hampshire.
I work both as a Traditional Storyteller and as Merry-go-Round Storytelling, I also specialise in interactive storytelling workshops for children.
I take my storytelling into Schools, Preschools, Forest Schools, Venues, Events and Festivals.
Traditional Storytelling for children and families
As a traditional storyteller, I can tell stories for all ages and have worked for a variety of organisations and charities such as The National Literacy Trust, The National Trust, English Heritage and The Hawk Conservancy Trust.
I have a variety of stories old and new and am happy to create a storytelling programme or devise stories to suit your event.
Interactive Storytelling workshops for children aged 11 and under
All Merry-go-Round Storytelling workshops and sessions are devised and run by myself and are available in most areas of Southern England.
Every workshop is highly interactive and combines traditional storytelling with music, movement and drama to create an energetic and engaging storytelling experience.
I use a wide range of props (many of which are hand-made), as well as puppets and percussion instruments to make my workshops both visually exciting and fun to join in with.
Due to the highly interactive style of storytelling, these workshops are also suitable for very young children and children with special needs.
Creative Storytelling Workshops
I also offer Creative Storytelling workshops. These combine puppet, mask making and model making with storytelling and drama and are suitable for schools and events.
