Testimonials

“Those who value the tradition of storytelling can admire a craftsman at work. David may scare, revolt, make you laugh and make you think, all in the space of one story, but he always leaves you wanting more. We have been delighted to welcome him many times at the Fairford Festival.”
Fairford Festival
David’s storytelling sessions were a regular highlight for people of all ages. He is particularly fondly remembered for his skills in encouraging the younger children to take the limelight and tell their own stories, and his gentle presence brought a very special quality to our Dance Camp.

“ .. the children were really engaged.” (St. Luke’s Primary School, Maidenhead) “He had the children tip-toeing around and pretending to fly .. the children thoroughly enjoyed the day.”
Ellington Primary School, Maidenhead
We would like to thank you very much for a wonderful evening. A Candlelit supper with stories always promised to be atmospheric. The experience will remain with all of us for a very long time. My favourites were the jewish tailor and the crane feast. It was refreshing and enchanting to hear traditional tales that did not become bound by modern structure and limitations for stories.
Private 50th Birthday Party: Stories Around the Dining Table
The children spent an idyllic morning in the woods, summoned to the storyteller by the beat of his drum which could be heard echoing throughout the forest. Each group were fascinated by David and his stories and were thrilled to be able to join in and influence the progression of the story. Adults and children returned to school refreshed and inspired.

“David’s storytelling was a highlight of the dance camp for my family. Not just the wonderfully unfamiliar folk tales he has magically unearthed, but the mesmerising way he brings them to life, drawing the audience in with song and dance and plenty of laughter. A real treat.”

 “Highly recommended!” With his stories and his drum, David skilfully plucks our hearts and plumbs the emotions, connecting us to the eternal process of love and laughter, tears and fears, so that they become our own.
