Hello! I am Olivia, a professional storyteller based in London, originally from Northern Ireland. I have been telling stories all my life and professionally for over twelve years. I have an extensive repertoire of traditional folktales and am also frequently commissioned to devise and perform site-specific original stories. I work regularly with many of the major names in the cultural sector – such as Windsor Castle, the Royal Academy, the National Gallery, the British Museum, the Royal Albert Hall, the British Library and Buckingham Palace. 

Storytelling is for all ages. I tell stories for children and I tell stories for adults. I have a particular focus on working with adults with learning disabilities, unlocking stories within gallery contexts and facilitating adults to create and perform their own stories.
