I have worked for over twenty-five years in schools and educational establishments performing and facilitating workshops. I have worked with students of all ages from early years through to post sixteen years in both mainstream and special needs education and I am passionate about inspiring the next generation of storytellers and communicators.

“The children thoroughly enjoyed the storytelling session and so did the teachers. As I sat in my office just outside the room used for the storytelling I heard children saying "that was brilliant" "that was so good". Thank you Hannah for engaging with our pupils so well. “

Primary Education

I set up Tiny Tales Storytellers in 2013 to specifically work with Early Years and Primary aged children in sharing and creating stories through interactive performances and workshops.

Early Years

I love working with nurseries and pre-schools to bring interactive storytimes throughout the year. I have a wide repertoire of both traditional tales and tales from around the world with plenty of opportunities to join in through actions and song. I am also assisted by a whole host of puppet friends who love getting the children to help tell the story.

Key Stage 1 & 2

I offer both interactive storytelling sessions where children get to listen and actively join in and storytelling workshops where children get to listen, explore and create stories. I have an extensive repertoire of stories to draw upon from both traditional folk and fairy tales to myths and legends from around the world. The tales compliment topics across the National Curriculum and are perfect to mark key celebrations across the year, including National Storytelling Week and World Book Day.

Secondary & Further Education

I offer both performance storytelling workshops and communication skills workshops that utilise storytelling skills. I can also offer a range of storytelling performances that compliment a range of curriculum subjects.

Sacred Heart Catholic Primary

Inspiring and fun storytelling sessions. As well as being entertained by the stories, it was a joy to watch the children's captivated faces as Hannah worked her magic."

Trinket Box Nursery

Our children are always excited and enthralled by Hannah & Oakley's visits to us.

South East Essex College

The storytelling workshops were insightful & very well received. The students were thoroughly engaged by Hannah's performance, 'captivating' were the words used.

CPD Training

I offer bespoke CPD training for teachers and organisations keen to further develop their creative practice and storytelling skills. These can be stand alone workshops or a series of sessions and are tailored to the needs of the individual institutions.
