Nell's stories are told (not read!) – call it traditional storytelling or oral or fabulous old stories re-told: Nell’s performance storytelling creates a rich and sociable event in a limitless variety of spaces.  

Nell aims to excite extraordinary images in the minds of the listeners and take them on a wild ride through known and little-told stories. Traditional storytelling connects powerfully with contemporary audiences whilst honouring the traditional spirit and tone of the tale.

Storytelling is an entertainment, a shared experience and a spur to the imagination. Through myths, folktales, legends, epics and fairytales we find a means to a deeper understanding of each other and ourselves.

Stories live in your blood and bones... and light candles on the darkest nights.

Patti Davis

Fairy tales are more than true, not because they tell us that dragons exist, but because they tell us that dragons can be beaten.

G.K. Chesterton
