Hello. I am Olivia, a London storyteller from County Down, Northern Ireland. I tell traditional folktales, wonder tales, legends and myths from around the world. I am also frequently commissioned to devise and tell original stories, often site-specific. I perform in London museums and art galleries, as well as historic sites in England and Northern Ireland.

I regularly tell stories at the National Gallery, Windsor CastleDulwich Picture Gallery, the Horniman Museum, the Cutty SarkBuckingham Palace, the National Maritime Museum and the Museum of London amongst others. 

Recent commissions include devising and performing adult stories for the National Gallery's Michelangelo & Sebastiano exhibition... creating and performing a series of stories for the re-opening of the Postal Museum  in summer 2017... adult storytelling at the Horniman Museum Museums at Night Late... developing and delivering family storytelling workshops for the British Library... performing traditional Irish folktales at the Polka Theatre... devising a story about Tessa Wheeler for Verulamium Museum... writing and performing a short storytelling film for the Museum of the Order of St John... storytelling at the British Museum's Day of the Dead Festival... creating specially commissioned stories for the Queen's 90th Birthday and Shakespeare 400 at Windsor Castle... working with Children and the Arts on a storytelling project with north London schools at the Ben Uri Gallery... creating an original storytelling performance for Maria Merian's Butterflies at the Queen's Gallery... creating a tailor-made storytelling performance for  the Woodland Fairy Fair at the Watts Gallery... telling stories of Ancient Egypt for the Beyond Beauty exhibition at Two Temple Place...

I was English Heritage's resident storyteller at Kenwood House from 2013 to 2015, devising and performing a story each month based on a different painting from the collection.  I also develop and deliver early years storytelling sessions for Kensington Palace and Hampton Court.

I am always happy to tailor my storytelling to your event and requirements. For bookings, commissions and queries I can be contacted  at oliviaarmstrong@hotmail.com and I am always happy to discuss my availability, my fees and how I can bring storytelling to you.
