Storyteller for Hire?

So you're thinking about hiring a storyteller for an event of some sort? Well hopefully you will find the answer to your query on this page. However if you can't find what you're looking for, please do not hesitate to send me a message and I'll get back to you asap (usually same day or the day after).

CRB and Insurance:

I hold a full CRB check and appropriate public liability insurance. For any customers who might want an extra special evening of tales around a campfire, I am also insured for having a small camp fire in a brazier, so long as the audience are no closer than 5 metres.  

Prices and costs:

I always recommend you contact me for a precise quote as the total cost will vary depending on what you want and where you are. However to give you an indication, I can offer a 1 - 2 hour telling for as little as £60/hr, 3-4 hr telling at £50/hr, or 5hrs and over for £45/hr. Travel costs are additional for journeys over 20 miles. 

What can I expect from a booking?

Please see the guidance on the  booking page.

Fundraising:

If you want some help to consider how to build a funraising event around a storytelling event then please get in touch. I have extensive experieince of supporting voluntary organisations, community groups and social enterprises in these matters and will readily work with you to make such an event a success.  

Specific tales by request:

If there is a specific story you'd like told, please let me know. So long as there is sufficient time between the booking and the date of delivery, and you are able to refer me to some source material, I am more than happy to accommodate such requests.

Audience size:

I will deliver a storytellling session to virtually any size of audience. There are of course practical considerations such as the acoustics of the space and whether a microphone will be required. Large audiences also require a different approach to small audiences however I have no particular preference. The choice is up to you as the customer and will depend on what you want to achieve through a booking.

Packages:

If you are looking for some variety there are many things I can offer. My business website called Connection, details the other activities I deliver besides storytelling. These activities can be combined in a mix and match approach to provide a varied day of activitiy based around a particular theme. This can be ideal for schools.

Commissions:

The commission service is something very special. It is a more expensive service because of the amount of work involved, but it demonstrates the true power of a good story. If you are considering a commission please do contact me and I will happily provide you some thoughts and ideas at no charge to help you decide if this is something you would like to explore.
