Cath has a warm and witty style of storytelling and she has a wonderful sense of humour.
My repertoire is largely based on traditional and folk tales. I revel in sourcing stories, making them my own and passing them on so that my audiences can love them as much as I do
I learnt a love of folklore and stories as a small child; as an adult I told stories to my own children, and, as a teacher, worked with children through story. I now tell stories to adult audiences, family audiences, very young children, school-age children and children and young people with special needs.
I am co-host of Lichfield Storytellers and the Society for Storytelling Midlands representative. My book West Midlands Folk Tales is available from The History Press; Warwickshire Folk Tales is in preparation. Why not like my facebook page for news of my latest projects.

Whether in a school, a library or perhaps on a storywalk, children love stories, and the benefits are many
As a teacher in special schools, I used stories for many years as a creative teaching technique with youngsters with SLD, PMLD and ASD
I run workshops that are informative, fun and packed with good ideas for school staff, storytellers and children
Adults find storytelling both entertaining and relaxing; people new to storytelling are often surprised at how much they enjoy it!
