This Friday I’m doing a session at a local school for children with social, emotional and behavioural difficulties, to celebrate their Roald Dahl day. It’s a very exciting prospect, but also a little daunting for me: after all, mostly I tell old legends and folktales; it’s actually quite a sideways step to focus on material … More Celebrating a true storyteller
It’s true; it’s real – this is going to happen. Rachel Levy and I will be bringing back our recreation of the Saga of Hervor and Heidrek as part of Brighton Horrorfest 2019.

Among the many new gigs I’ve got coming up, I’ll be at two really special events at King John’s Nursery, Etchingham.

I’m getting to spend an awful lot of time storytelling in Lewes these days, which has given me loads of opportunities to explore. There are so many beautiful little spots around the town, and they look all the more special in this glorious sunny weather we’re having.

(That’s not a reflection on the current UK news, either; I’m honestly surprised to find we’re nearly at the end of the month already.) I suspect part of the answer is that I’ve been a blur of … More Maps, Time Machine,Comics, Hat; GO.
Hello all! Sorry it’s been a little while since I’ve posted anything – but it’s certainly not because I’ve been idle.

More Old Norse stuff to look forward to: at the end of the month I’ll be running a workshop at this activity day, using storytelling to engage and inspire local Girl Guides with Viking history and STEM subjects (a very fruitful mix of topics, you’ll find!). And best of all, to finish the day my … More Viking Adventure Day for Lewes Girl Guides!
