Nell's stories are told (not read!) – call it traditional storytelling or oral or fabulous old stories re-told: Nell’s performance storytelling creates a rich and sociable event in a limitless variety of spaces.  

Nell aims to excite extraordinary images in the minds of the listeners and take them on a wild ride through known and little-told stories. Traditional storytelling connects powerfully with contemporary audiences whilst honouring the traditional spirit and tone of the tale.

Storytelling is an entertainment, a shared experience and a spur to the imagination. Through myths, folktales, legends, epics and fairytales we find a means to a deeper understanding of each other and ourselves.

What if our education systems were to insist that teachers be poets and storytellers and artists? What transformations would follow?

Matthew Fox

Stories live in your blood and bones... and light candles on the darkest nights.
