Stories for all ages

A traditional sit down telling can be from 20 to 45 minutes and will incorporate a selection of stories. These can be related to a particular theme or subject of your choice.

Stories are an excellent way to stimulate debate and reflection on a subject or to warm up the imagination for any creative activity. They are also an exciting event in their own right, guaranteed to add a little magic to any activity.

My story telling follows an ancient oral tradition and naturally transitions in to story making. For this I take the role of a guide, enabling groups to explore and create their own stories, populated with heroes, adventure and the issues that matter to them.

These sessions can be as simple or complex as you would like. Story making can use a wide range of materials, or very little. It can be a quick additional exercise or a full day of exploration! Please contact me to discuss your specific requirements.

Ross is a great story teller – he takes on the character of Sir Francis Crossley and bring him back to life through the living books concept – enthralling both adults and children alike with tales from the past. Ross is very entertaining and brings the stories alive. Elaine

Just some feedback from yesterday, I thought you were inspirational, the passion and pride you have for your work. I’ve worked for some large and small organisations across the globe. They would all be lucky to have someone like you in their business.

It clearly appeared that Ross was just fantastic with all children and found it easy to bring himself to a level that they could respond to. I was genuinely touched at the caring and kind nature of Ross and now zahra will always look out for him if we visit. nicola clarke
