Daniel Morden Performance
How did it go?
A fabulous morning of storytelling at the glamorous Newcastle Theatre Royal was enjoyed by seven primary schools and their teachers. Daniel is expert at traditional tales with a modern twist, and we all hung on his every word! The children were also really thrilled to be in such a beautiful building and there were many appreciative 'ooos' and 'aahs' as they came in.

Want to help more children attend events like this in the future?
Daniel Morden is a master storyteller. He has travelled the world collecting and telling stories, from South Wales to Haiti. (Daniel has always been a storyteller even as a child walking to and from school.) He has been storyteller in residence at both the Royal National Theatre and the Barbican Centre in London, and has adapted stories for the theatre, television and radio. Daniel really enjoys retelling traditional Welsh folktales and his latest book published last year by Gomer is Secret Tales from Wales introducing us to eight secret or forgotten stories.
In praise of Dark Tales from the Woods
Dark Tales from the Woods are the real thing, reminiscent of many of the grimmest Grimms' tales… Gruesome, fantastical and hypnotic, Morden's stories show why the fairy world will never lose its power over our imaginations.
