Daniel Morden performance

How did it go?

Storyteller Daniel Morden took to the stage at HOME theatre this morning to delight over 300 local primary school children with his storytelling! We had creepy stories, happy-ever-after stories and stories about Jack all captivating the audience! There was audience participation and lots of laughter trying to solve a riddle and we also had time for a Q&A session at the end. All the children went home happy with a free copy of Daniel’s book Secret Tales from Wales.

Daniel also visited 4 schools in the local area and ran a creative writing workshop with a class of children in each.

Daniel Morden

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 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.
