Shropshire based traditional oral storyteller. Tall tales, tarradiddles and stories that make you think


I am a freelance storyteller based in Much Wenlock, Shropshire, telling tales at social gatherings, fundraisers, schools, residential homes, hospices etc.

The ‘bodger’ part of Storybodger came about through an interest in green wood turning or bodging. The storytelling has become busier, the wood turning less so. Even though these days I seldom use the pole lathe, the name has stuck!

I love preparing sets of stories to present to groups of all ages. Please have a look at my ‘About’ page and blog for more information. It would be great to hear from you.
