Storytelling for Adults

A connection with wonder. Storytelling and consultancy for your event, festival, gallery or business. I also do training.

Vanessa from London Dreamtime created an excellent experience for us, telling a secret story in a themed private event. Her approach to choosing the right story for the theme was very diligent and resourceful. Great communication on the concepting stage with a dash of surprise. G Soikok

Excellent. Really fantastic. Turned a medical thing into an emotional concept for a woman. Healthcare professional audience member, UCL, on ‘Secrets from the Soul’, our award-winning public engagement performance at Grant Museum of Zoology

Just wanted to thank you for everything over the last couple of days – you’ve been amazing! (Late night tales for adults over three nights at Dodds Gin Soho Pop-Up Shop

You’re a fantastic storyteller, and the way the story came across was both vivid and captivating. I’ve loved Wapping for quite sometime, but Sunday enhanced my appreciation greatly
