'Thank you so much for your hard work today with the children! I really hope that you enjoyed the day as much as we did and it all ran smoothly for you. The children were very excited to tell me about their sessions and the story telling assembly! I’d like to thank you for the lovely day and hopefully we will see you again in the near future. '

“A lovely session that was really enjoyed by our visitors”- Learning Manager, Roald Dahl Museum on The Unexpected Journey of Chocolate
“Thank you for the amazing storytelling sessions”- Education Secretary & Trustee, Tolkien Society on Mr Bliss storytelling shows for Tolkien Day
“Your Alice in Wonderland sessions were wonderful - the delivery was delightfully quirky and full of fun. Each session was subtly tailored to the individual year group to engage, challenge and inspire them. You brought a classic to life and made it accessible to Reception to Year 2 children. We all enjoyed your storytelling enormously - thank you!”
“Thank you Lucy for all your help with World Book Day. The children had a really marvellous day and were very inspired by it”
“Lucy performed very well encouraging the children to join in through singing with instruments, rhymes and storytelling. Excellent work!”
“We first worked with Lucy on our debut event at the prestigious Hay Festival for one of our children’s books Pantone Colours. The idea behind the event was to create an experience that would be both fun and educational for very young children. During the audition process Lucy blew us away with the research and effort she had put into her preparation. Lucy was not only a fantastic, endearing actress but eager to help shape and curate the event with us. Lucy is a talented, creative and a dedicated individual and we wouldn’t think twice about hiring her again. In fact we recently did just that at the Pop Up Festival of Stories where Lucy led an extremely busy Babar storytelling event with over 100 children. An absolute pleasure to work with, brilliant with young children and always with an energetic and amicable attitude”. – Abrams & Chronicle Books
