Are you thinking about commissioning a special story? It’s really easy. I’ll work closely with you to make sure that the end product is exactly right for your needs.

Here are some examples of story commissions I’ve done.
- “The Queen’s Storyteller” Kensington Palace, London. A story for family audiences aged 3-12 about Queen Caroline of Ansbach with lots of historical detail which would also incorporate a simple technique to help audience members make up their own stories without writing anything down. It was important that audiences were able to walk away from the session feeling confident that they could make up and tell their own stories. Here we are, learning a rhyme with actions, all about making up a story:
2) “The Heron Wife” A scary story for adults set in Richmond, London about the Thames which would complement the Cityread2015 title “Rivers of London”. Performed after closing time in Richmond Library.
“I was like a kid at Christmas.”-AH, audience member, Richmond.
3) “Guess how much I love you?” A 30 minute multi sensory show with music and participation, suitable for festivals, based on the popular picture book.
…Other commissions this year include a chilling story for adults at Upminster Windmill, A storytelling workshop for schools about river pollution for Thames 21… and a special tale for Under-5s to celebrate the Unicorn Theatre‘s 10th Birthday.
