Days and Nights of Storytelling...
Thank you to the lovely audience at Lichfield's Tales In The Courtyard Storytelling Club I really enjoyed sharing LRRH and Other Lost Girls with you!
Now preparing stories for Bedtime Stories at 40 Winks next week - and prepping for Kate and Will's wedding (I'm the Storytelling MC).
Don't forget to buy your tickets for Festival at the Edge http://www.festivalattheedge.org/reservations

For Little Red at Bedtime Stories at 40 Winks imalondoner wrote:
'The old oral tradition of storytelling has somewhat faded out, but in these dimly lit walls glows. Tonight’s narrator is Nell Phoenix, who transports her captive listeners around the globe with her retelling of fairytales and the fallen females they speak of. Captivating'.
What if our education systems were to insist that teachers be poets and storytellers and artists? What transformations would follow?
People are hungry for stories. It is part of our very being.
