Welcome to Snail Tales — the place to visit for stories that stay with you!
Thank you to everyone who voted for A Bird In Your Ear at the British Awards for Storytelling Excellence! We were only 6 votes away from winning the title of Outstanding Collaboration 2012 — a fantastic result for every child who has sent in stories over the last four years! Please keep telling your stories!
Snail Tales are a team of oral storytellers who aim to share with you the power of story to enrich life. We use traditional techniques that have engaged, inspired and entertained audiences since the dawn of speech — but we also make good use of other styles of performance, such as puppetry, ballads, magic and art. And of course there is always plenty of joining in!
Our storytellers have worked closely with some very high profile organisations. For example, we became the face of the Oxford University Press Reading Tree... we have recently partnered with the National Literacy Trust to offer prizes for their Reading Challenge... and our Artistic Director is the current chair of the Society for Storytelling. We've also received funding from the Arts Council and the John Thaw Foundation for our Little Birds workshops and theatre shows.
Whether you hope to encourage enthusiasm for learning in your school, add colourful amusement to your event, increase the key skills of your organisation or book a highly enjoyable family theatre show for your venue, Snail Tales can offer you something positively memorable. That's why our motif is a snail: you'll be carrying these wonderful stories with you for life.
Have fun, and we hope to share stories with you soon!
