If ye booke him
If you have a special theme or historical period that needs more specific tales, I am happy to research and perform new commissioned pieces. There is an extra charge for research however, but I do try to keep costs reasonable - especially if I can re-use stories.
Previous commissioned shows include:
Tales of the King and Tudor Tall Tales
(with John Freeman for English Heritage)
(for Exeter RAMM Museum)
Wild and Wooly Tales - Dartmoor Animals and Landscape
(for Tavistock Library)
Tales of the Fianna
(with Jon Freeman for "Festival At The Edge" storytelling festival)
Axe Age, Sword Age! - Viking and Saxon stories
(with Clive Pig - Crediton Library)
(for National Maritime Museum, Falmouth)
THIS BEING DETAILES OF HOW TO SECURE SERVICES
Nearly all performances (except some school shows and workshops) are priced depending on the type / complexity / length / number of performers / amount of travel etc. However, as a rough guide, a one-man storytelling show lasting between one hour and one and a half hours would cost £170 (plus petrol costs). For many outdoor events I will liaise beforehand with the organisers, to perform short shows several times over the day (adding up to around an hour to an hour and a half performance time).
Feel free to contact me to discuss your ideas and for a no-obligation quote for a show that will fit your needs. I can work on my own but equally have access to a whole troop of talented performers and musicians. You might want a mix of walkabout characters, puppetry, storytelling, music or the whole lot! I can usually arrange such a mix and match package and come up with a competitive quote.
