Tom Tells Tall Tales to Tiny Tykes! (and bigger tykes, too)
A morning of tales from our own Tom "the Tale Teller" Philips, for children in three age groups, and all the the lovely open-air setting of Pughe's Paddock
Preschoolers: from 10:00am
Join Tom the Tale Teller for lots of fun, bouncy stories. With a suitcase full of props and puppets and his story stick, Tom will use the power of story to capture your little one’s imaginations.
Infants: from 11:00am
Where do our stories come from? How did the rabbit lose his tail? What other adventures did the famous Jack have once the giant was slain?
Find out the answers to these and many more questions through the power of story. No books, no scripts, just Tom the Tale Teller, the stories, a few props and an audience to help bring the stories to life. These stories will make you laugh, make you cry and make you jump. Fun for the whole family.
Juniors stories: from 12:00pm
As we bask under the glorious Bank Holiday sunshine(!), its time to settle down and let your imaginations run wild. With his fabulous story stick, half a life time of collecting stories and two books of folk tales, Tom the Tale Teller, storyteller and author, brings a collection of stories for older kids. Fun, adventure and excitement for all.
Tom ‘the Tale Teller’ is a Hinckley based storyteller and author. After 15 years of teaching, Tom turned his talents to the art of storytelling. No books, no scripts, just the storyteller, the story and the audience. Over a decade of tale telling has taken Tom the length and breadth of the country telling his stories before he got the chance to write two folk tale books for children for the History Press. He now continues to tell traditional folk tales, myths, legends and his own stories to audiences young and old whilst promoting his books and writing in his rare free time.
