[Here are] some of the sketches that Y4 drew – inspired by your wonderful storytelling! Thank you for sharing your stories with our children, as you can see from the photos, they thoroughly enjoyed your visit. We hope to see you again in the near future!

We were at the ROH on Sunday and our children really enjoyed your stories. LOVED them! As did we. It made me realise being told (rather than read) stories is all too rare, and there is something magical about it.

With an utterly engaging intimate storytelling style, Nell balances beautifully the comedic and the magical.

I was easily swept up in the lyrical, tragic moments that tripped off Nell’s tongue like water off the proverbial merman’s back

Nell Phoenix has been regularly performing at our fabled Bedtime Story Nights for over five years, playing a hugely important role in making them one of the best reviewed events in the country. She is ALWAYS the first person we contact when we are scheduling new dates, and she is also our first choice for any bespoke events we are asked to do for high-profile corporate clients such as Charles Heidsieck Champagne or The Royal Exchange.

Nell is a natural performer with a rare gift to woo, tease, inspire and enchant an audience. She is a joy to work with, and I would highly recommend her to anyone who is programming events, or who simply wants to enjoy an evening brimming over with wild wit and gentle wisdom. Nell is an absolute star!!

There have been great societies that did not use the wheel, but there have been no societies that did not tell stories.

Without stories we would go mad. Stories can conquer fear, you know. They make the heart larger.
