Stories Told with Humour, Passion, Wit, and Understanding


Professional Storytelling Programmes and Workshops for Adults

Explore the worlds of history and fiction with my storytelling programmes and workshops. There is a wealth of gripping adult tales and stories that have been passed down through generations, but it takes the performance of a professional storyteller to bring them to life. I am Carl Merry Talespinner, and I take historical material and existing tales and weave them into stories that have the audience on the edge of their seats. Get in touch today to discover more.
