I spent a lovely couple of days in Yorkshire back in June. First I was at York Explore taking a voice workshop and telling the Irish wonder tale Mongan’s Frenzy. Then I took the long, winding bus ride to Hebden Bridge to the Shaggy Dog Storytellers where I told Patched and Mended.

 

I recorded the Radio 4 Charity Appeal on behalf of the Snowden Charity Appeal Recording BBCwonderful Snowdon Trust a charity set up to help disabled students in further and higher education who are working towards a professional goal.
