‘But history is boring...’
Think again! I am a storyteller whose focus is on bringing the past to life and taking different angles on the stories you think you know, and some you may never have heard before.
I’ve spent many years exploring topics in history through character driven storytelling, often in period costume. I worked for three years as an historical storyteller as part of the Living History programme at Edinburgh Castle telling tales of the Jacobites and the Scottish Wars of Independence, and since then have tackled subjects as diverse as Suffragettes, Saints, early mental health care, the fishing industry, and witchcraft.
As well as a passion for making history accessible for all, I also enjoy sharing stories of folklore and I love a good ghost story. I am available for all types of groups, anywhere in Scotland.
