Libraries and Events Storytelling
Libraries and events:
Open sessions: Stories suitable for both adults and children are told in 15 - 20 minute blocks, to allow people to listen to a tale and then move on. Many different tales available for each culture/time period, so people can return to the story-telling several times and hear a different tale each time.
Exclusive sessions: It is also possible to use libraries as the venues for school or group visits - this is usually arranged with your local library, and one or more schools bring in classes for different sessions. Story content, style and length is adapted for different audiences: there is no "This is the story and one size fits all" mentality.
Popular at fêtes, agricultural Shows, seasonal celebrations like Springtime/Easter, Hallowe'en, Christmas, etc, Ravens' Tales professional storytelling is a way to raise your profile, attract visitors, and to keep them happy.
Jacky came to Newcastle Library & enthralled the children with her scary Victorian tales! She was dressed in Victorian costume and was brilliant! I can't wait to have her back again!"
