Hannah became a professional storyteller in 2012, sidestepping from a career as a classically trained actress. Always putting the story at the heart of her performances and driven by a passion to engage and inspire, Hannah uses the power of oral storytelling to weave new worlds and adventures, taking her audience through traditional and modern tales and into folk tales and myths from around the world. Telling stories to both old and young alike, those drawn into Hannah’s stories find themselves on playful and poignant journeys that captivate their hearts and minds, and leave them just a little more curious.
Hannah’s own story has found her telling tales at large scale festivals with matching audiences and tiny venues to a few. She has shared stories in all sorts of places, from woodlands and clifftops to piers and trains, in theatres and churches to windmills and hospitals. Wherever she goes Hannah lifts the soul with her unique brand of telling and infectious joy for her craft.
Hannah is the founder and owner of Tiny Tales Storytellers, a company that specialises in engaging children, schools and families through storytelling, and she holds storytelling residencies at Southend Theatres and Jacqson Diego Story Emporium. In 2016 she co-founded Spinning Yarns Theatre to bring storytelling to adult audiences with a collective of tellers through monthly events including ‘Pint of Tales’ and ‘Told @ Twenty One’ in Southend on Sea.
