Storytelling performances and workshops


Taffy Thomas, MBETaffy Thomas MBE

Laureate for Storytelling, 2010 to 2012

Taffy Thomas is a master storyteller who travels all over the UK sharing his favourite tales and showing how stories can be passed on from one generation to the next. He always leaves his audience with a tale or two to take home and retell.

In 2010, Taffy was given the honorary position of becoming the nation's first Laureate for Storytelling, which began with a launch hosted by Michael Rosen in London's British Library.

Taffy can offer schools performances and workshops tailored to suit any age, from 4 to adult, and is happy to discuss individual requirements. Many of his sessions feature his amazing Tale-Coat - a kind of storytelling juke box from which audience members can select an embroidered scene to hear one of Taffy's extraordinary tales.

Typical fees:

£250 per half day (including one to two sessions)

£350 per full day (including three sessions)

Multi-school and cluster booking deals can be negotiated.

All prices exclude expenses, which are agreed in advance and charged to the school.
