Future Work includes:

On Wednesday 14th August, I’ll be telling tales at a community picnic run by Yiewsley Library in West Drayton, London.

Later in August myself and Alys Torrance will be bringing stories of ancient Rome, Boudicca, and a little misunderstanding about death duties to The Latin Programme’s Summer School for 7-14 year olds.

In the autumn, more festivals beckon: the first of these will be the Hastings Steampunk Storytelling Extravaganza, over the weekend of 14th-15th September. This is part of a whole weekend of steampunk activity: tea duelling, drumming, jugglers, falconry, magic, and a dog competition on the Sunday. And as part of the weekend twelve (yes! TWELVE!!) storytellers will be delighting you with performances and workshops. I’ll be telling there on Saturday afternoon.

At Romsey Festival, 5-6th October, I hope to be telling Gawain and the Green Knight – and looking further ahead, I’ll be telling Gawain in December too – on Sat 14th Dec in Barnstaple, Devon.
