Hazel, willow, beef and storytelling from Bedfordshire

Storytelling in the woods (old version)

Jane telling stories at RHS WisleyJane started a career in environmental education and countryside management, but soon became sidetracked by storytelling.

Naturally she first discovered storytelling outside, in the woods, and found it was a wonderful way to captivate an audience and engage people’s imagination. From her first encounter with storytellers over 20 years ago Jane never forgot the stories she heard and has been telling those tales ever since, gradually building up a wide repertoire of traditional stories to share. Jane’s love and knowledge of the natural world combined with her skills as a storyteller enable her to deliver exciting and educational outdoor experiences.

Storytelling in the woods

For a few days in the year Bottoms’ Corner Wood unlocks its gate to welcome you to special storytelling events.  In a beautiful woodland setting you can enjoy tradition stories; fairy, folk and animal tales on a walk though the trees to a secret glade for a tea party. All events are aimed at adults and children over 5 years old (unless otherwise specified). All children must be accompanied by an adult. Booking and payment in advance are essential.

Comments from previous events:

“Lovely setting and very engaging storytelling” “Fantastic selection of cakes” “Can’t wait for next time” “Thank you for another enchanting afternoon in the woods” “We absolutely loved the entire event, especially the fact the settings and stories were different from last time” “A lovely way to bring children closer to nature” “This was a perfect opportunity for my city granddaughter to immerse herself in a real wood. We both loved the afternoon” “Brilliant from the stories to the organisation and the cake!”

Here are some pictures of two lovely, sunny days in 2019.
