MAKING WORDS WORK
David has been working as a storyteller since 1991. He brings the old tradition alive – that storytellers do it differently every time – in his dynamic and vibrant performance style.
He has worked as a teller with all ages in schools, libraries, prisons, festivals, weddings, environmental events, story walks, teacher inset training, clubs, pubs and theatres. He concentrates on performances for those over the age of 11. Storytelling is NOT just for children!
He has performed at Edinburgh Fringe Festival; worked for English Heritage (to include telling at Stonehenge), Youth Hostel Association, Library Association, Dorset County Council, Residential Education Centres, Arts Centres and theatres. For a number of years he organised The Weymouth & Portland Borough Council’s Storytelling Festival.
