Popping Up in your emails to tell you about some of the opportunities for collaboration, storytelling in your setting, drama workshops or training.

  • Do you have a Festival, Event or Arts Week ripe for a Storyteller or drama event?
  • Do you want to launch a topic in spectacular fashion?
  • Do you want to introduce a subject using drama?
  • Do you want to train your team, deepen their skills and develop further approaches to creativity?
  • Do you want to reward your setting with this most ancient and yet contemporary art form?
You could have a peep around my website and see the type of work I could do in collaboration with you.

This mail out has lots of detail and as a thank you for getting through it, if you make a booking with me for between now and the end of August and mention this Mailing, I will give you a £50 discount.

The very best way to spend the day!

From early Years to adults. Storytelling is everything we do. Everything we are.
We listen to be inspired.
We listen to be enthralled.
We listen to learn.
An ancient art and a contemporary skill for all of us.
I can be flexible with timetabling, group sizes and abilities, to meet your need. I could see most of the school in a day, or combine stories with active drama for an even richer and more memorable experience over a couple of days.
Traditional Tales with a Twist - reworking of the stories we thought we knew so well, jumpstarting a term of thinking, writing and stories.
Historical Stories - that immerse the listener in the emotional settings of some of the great moments in history.

What stories shall we find together?
Every story session was fantastic. The children hung off every word and were captured from the start.

Refugees & Asylum Seekers
Drama Workshop

A two hour workshop targeted at year 5 & 6 (though it can be adapted for other year groups in KS2, 3 & 4). Developed in partnership with the brilliant Theatre in The Quarter, based on content and materials from City of Sanctuary, Amnesty International & The UNHCR. This is a chance to understand, experience and maybe challenge pre conceived stereotypes.

A key element is the emphasis on empathy & understanding for the displaced and persecuted of today's world.   

"The children responded amazingly. They empathised so much so they were rewarded for it.
It's been an absolutely invaluable experience for them."

The Arches Primary School
Blacon, Chester
Fabulous afternoon of storytelling with Reception. It gave us inspirational ideas for working with the children in the immersion space and the children loved the Goldilocks story cliffhanger.

Storytelling Training
A Practical Workshop for Teams

Up on it's feet, active and aimed at every level of confidence and skill.

With a focus on practical examples, this is a workshop to help your team communicate effectively as storytellers, in any context.

We will work on voice, movement, pace, engagement, humour and creativity. Working on confidence and easily identifiable skills. This will leave your team with a passion for this most ancient, important and also contemporary of art forms. 
Additionally - a further workshop is available looking at Digital StoryTelling. How to make simple but powerful images and video to use in your 4D Immersive Space, PopUp or just with a projector and speaker!

Recent teams trained include Storyhouse in Chester & the Chester Zoo Park Rangers

"Fantastic engaging course tutor. Really interesting with lots of great ideas."
Storyhouse Arts Centre - Chester
All the children thoroughly enjoyed their sessions. The stories were age appropriate and engaging. They were expertly delivered.
Deputy Head Teacher - Liverpool Primary School 
Training is also available for your 4D Immersive Space or PopUp.
(if you have one...)
Practical, Dynamic, Adaptable & Fun!

Refresh or introduce from the perspective of a practitioner working in spaces like this since the inception of the company.
Get in touch to discuss your teams needs - All versions and iterations of software covered.
Storytelling For Events & Festivals
All Ages

Do you have an event or a festival this year that would benefit from the inclusion of a unique, exciting, engaging, funny, silly, scary and memorable way to pass the day as a family?

All you need is an indoor space with a power socket. Big enough to PopUp and accessible!

Alternatively I can turn up to a room full of all ages and deliver up to an hour long Storytelling Show, to your crowd!

Anything is possible with a back pocket full of stories...
And if this isn't enough you can find more stories and examples of my adventures in creativity, learning & stories on my website and in my very sporadic blog...
And Finally...
