I started a podcast! Twenty minute original, imaginative and adventurous stories for children aged 2-8ish/80. I’ve been completely delighted to hear of kids tuning in a loving the stories from all over the world.

If you or someone you know is trying to entertain kids at home in this time, I’d love to invite them to listen. It’s good for their imaginations, for their vocabulary; it gives their parents a 20 minute break and my kids, at least, think it’s a lot of fun.

The first series is all about Princess Isobel and the adventures she has with her friends Harriet the Hare and Ulred the Unicorn.

Have a listen :)

The night was hosted in a space between containers on the upper level, with picnic tables, patio heaters and a single microphone.
