John tells stories, some are silly and some are serious. He works mainly in primary schools, museums and libraries.

John is an accomplished storyteller with an enjoyable dynamic and participatory style. He is passionate about stories and through his sessions encourages listening and participation and boosts oral confidence and attainment. John enthuses children with narrative and inspires them to discover stories and storytelling themselves.

John's current offer of stories includes Roald Dahl's "The Twits", Nigel Auchterlounie's "Dennis and the Chamber of Mischief", a special exploration of Shakespeare's stories as well as traditional stories and global folk tales.

What they said...

“The staff said you were the best story teller they had ever experienced.”

"I think your prices are particularly affordable and you really take all stresses off teachers as it was just so easy and stress free. You were well prepared and really engaged the group of learners"

"I must say that I haven't experienced so much spontaneous feedback from staff and pupils for any other storytelling visit. You made such a fantastic impact on adults and children alike!"

"It is always a bit un-nerving when you hire someone as you never know whether they are any good but you were brilliant."

"You capture the children's imagination and were able to keep them totally engaged for the whole session with a quality performance that focused on the skills of storytelling."

John is also a drama practitioner with experience of leading drama and theatre workshops.
