Alice tells tales from all around the world. She has always had a thirst for story and adventure and  has spent many years travelling the globe, and exploring the arts, creating her own rich life story along the way.

Alice  grew up in the Fen country in East Anglia and there are many tales of old Cambridgeshire and the ancient marshland that she likes to tell. However, Alice’s adventurous spirit has carried her far beyond the flatlands of the fen. She’s travelled extensively across Europe, worked in Holland and Italy, and wandered with a back pack around the Far East.

She continues to learn about  the world through the stories she tells; from the folktales of Northern Europe, to the mythology of ancient Greece, from stories of Old Russia, to traditional tales of India and Bangladesh.

Alice tells stories to all age groups, from 0-100 (and beyond).  She tells in theatres, libraries, at festivals, dinner parties, arts events; and she leads workshops in schools and universities. As a CELTA qualified EFL teacher, Alice also provides workshops and storytelling events for English Language Learners.

Alice is a gifted singer and a talented painter. She loves to include a musical and rhythmic elements to her storytelling, and she is developing ways of integrating visual arts into her performances and workshops. In addition to this Alice has a background in theatre arts and has worked as a professional actress since 2001.

Alice has recently moved to Scotland where she has been exploring its rich and welcoming storytelling community. She is now a member of The Scottish Storytelling Directory. She tells tales at regular club nights in Edinburgh and  performed her new full length storytelling show, BOLD DAUGHTERS  at the Scottish Storytelling Centre in February 2016.

Alice is currently developing a new project with Danish storyteller Svend Engh, entitled GIANTS which will premiere at TradFest 2017  at The Scottish Storytelling Centre.
