Want to organise a performance?


A solo Tellatale evening storytelling performance will typically consist of eight to ten tales, and last, with interval, around two hours. The first half largely comprises the comic tales, the second the deeper.

The choice of tales for any programme depends on your wishes, the tales I have recently added to my repertoire, as well as old favourites I wish to tell again. With several hundred tales in my backlist, there are always plenty to choose from.

If you want to add music: Tales and the Harp

Whatever your particular requirements are, I can offer a performance tailored to suit them at an appropriate price.
