Mary is a highly accomplished storyteller for schools, performing both in the UK and internationally. She is also one of the world's leading experts on using stories for health with children.
Storytelling is a great way to fire up children's imaginations and encourage confidence, creativity, and communication skills. Storytellers can also help schools inspire children to read and write for pleasure, especially kids who may not normally 'engage' with books.
Mary engages and inspires children by performing stories tailored to suit every age group. Whether it's fantastic fairy tales, horrible histories, or true life inspirational tales, Mary guarantees children will be spellbound and have lots of giggles! Please get in touch to learn more about the storytelling performances and workshops Mary offers for different key stages.
