"Absolutely fab! Thank you for such vivid and amusing stories. Food for the soul."

"Wonderful! So inspiring!"

"My friends saw your show at Whittlesey yesterday and were blown away! They were full of praise for you!"

Audience comments
Straw Bear Festival, Jan 2013



"I just wanted to thank you for your performances at our festival - I've heard nothing but praise about you and the stories you told - perfect!
You judged our audience just right...

... at our regular monthly meeting after the festival somebody said "she was the best storyteller we have ever had" and others who have been in, said pretty much the same!"

Seven Deadly Sins

 

"We really can't tell you how much we enjoyed your storytelling. We can't be the first to congratulate you on your amazing talent, but it really takes someone very special to hold the attention of 60 odd Morris dancers and musicians, most of whom had drunk far more than was good for them. We will 'dine out' on those pauses, when you had every one of us in the palm of your hand and you could have heard a pin drop. Unheard of in Morris circles!"

Ken & Kathy Trimmer, participants Ravenglass Folk Meet, Cumbria, June 2013
