About the storyteller:

Sarah Rundle is a professional storyteller and actor based in west London. She is trained in community storytelling in South Cheshire, and in acting at Drama Studio London. Over the last ten years she has performed at a diverse range of venues, from museums and theatres, to pubs, cafés, and a Saxon longhouse.

 Sarah’s storytelling for adults has been likened to stand-up comedy with a plot. She likes to weave complex tales, stories within stories, and have unexpected twists. Her repertoire includes folk tales from Britain and Ireland, stories from the Middle East and the Silk Road, along with yarns from Finland and above the Arctic Circle. 

Her shows for adults and 11+ teenagers include, Eat Me: Tales of Food and Cunning, Lands of Mystery and Desire, Medievalia, Sir Gawain and the Green Knight. 

According to Sarah, storytelling brings huge benefits to children, from speaking and listening, to increase vocabulary and lengthen concentration span.
