I trained and worked as a performer and drama facilitator for twenty-five years; the last eight focused primarily on performance and applied storytelling.
I have shared stories in all sorts of places, from woodlands to windmills, theatres to hospitals and trains to buses and I’m equally at home telling tales at large scale festivals with matching audiences, to more intimate club venues and now online in the virtual world too.
I set up Tiny Tales Storytellers in 2013 to provide storytelling performances and oracy skills workshops to Early Years and Primary School aged children and their families. I also work in secondary, special needs education, community groups, museums, festivals and at family events to bring the magic of oral storytelling to as wide an audience as possible.
I also run CPD for teachers to further develop their creative practice in the classroom and training for the private and public sector in effective communication and storytelling skills.
I have also created and delivered storytelling commissions for both private and public sector organisations.
