Flying Donkeys Storytellers, Derby

A joy to watch

Gill O'Donnell

I felt that those of us who were there had a very special evening. I was more excited by what you were doing than I have been for a long time. It just seemed very new and very right … one of the most exciting things I’ve ever heard.

Katy Cawkwell

Gloriously witty, intelligent and satirical … easily the best storyteller at the Festival.

Matthew Cox

The most amazing, inspirational storyteller in the world!

Sam Sender, British Quakers

Fantastic … I was blown away
