Hannah is a professional performance storyteller, drama educator and spoken word promoter. She is driven by a passion to engage and inspire through the power of story.
As a memeber of The Society of Storytellers, her mission is to increase access and participation to the ancient tradition of oral storytelling, particularly regionally in Essex where she is based.
"Always putting the story at the heart of her performances and driven by a passion to engage and inspire, Hannah uses the power of oral storytelling to weave new worlds and adventures, taking her audience through traditional and modern tales and into folk tales and myths from around the world. Telling stories to both young and old a like, those drawn into her stories find themselves on playful and poignant journeys that captivate their hearts and minds and leave them just a little more curious."
