About

HANNAH BRAILSFORD

STORYTELLER

Bringing Stories to Life.

"Captivating, compelling, high-energy and fun. A storyteller of irresistible and charming tales."

"Hannah, who I have had the privilege to perform along side on many occasions is a brilliant storyteller who has the ability to instantly draw in a young audience, spellbound, as she paints with words, vivid pictures of whatever place or person she so chooses from her vast repertoire. An energetic and most engaging personality who I highly recommend"


Peter Optical, Storyteller


 

I trained and worked as an actress and drama facilitator for many years, but after the birth of my daughter, I re-focused my career to full time storytelling.

 

I’ve always had a love of stories both old and new and always been drawn to sharing them. After all, people have a basic need to listen and tell stories. We have always told stories, even long before we knew how to write them down. My earliest memories are my mother telling me a 'magic story' every night before I went to sleep and my dreams being filled with the wonderful worlds and adventures she had conjured up in my imagination. If I can spark the same joy in just one child or adult then I'm happy. I am passionate about sparking imaginations and encouraging creativity in both young and old alike and I hope I can share my passion with you one day soon.

 

I tell stories in schools, nurseries, libraries, hospitals, yurts, windmills, galleries, fields, woods, by the sea and in gardens, in fact wherever someone will listen. I’ve worked for festivals, heritage sites, corporate events and parties engaging young and old with folk, fairy and wonder tales alongside myths and legends, both from these shores and from around the world. I have a wide reportoire and I'm always happy to research and prepare new material if required, after all, it gives me an excuse to dive into more stories!


So, if you are a school or have a project or event or just want to be taken away with a wonderful story, it's easy - just drop me an email with details about the dates and times you have in mind and I'll be happy to give you a quote. I have an enhanced DBS and public liability insurance and I'm a member of both Equity, The Society for Storytelling and The National Literacy Trust.
