Holly has been telling stories for children at schools, festivals and events since 2019. As a traditional storyteller, Holly tells stories from memory not books and often includes interactive elements that capture the children’s interest and imagination.

To suit the needs of your group you can choose between the themes of: Local Legends (tales of the Isle of Wight featuring shipwrecks, smuggling, miracles and monarchs), Traditional Tales (fun folktales and riddles) or The Walking Dead (stories of ghosts, vampires and ghouls for those who enjoy a spooky story before bed). You can also pick a mix of any of these or request stories on a theme of your own choosing.
