His work in Schools complements National Curriculum attainment targets and supports teachers' creative and linguistic requirements for their pupils. Chris also runs Training Courses in Storytelling for Teachers and Librarians. He has worked in England, Ireland, Scotland, Greece, Canada and France. Chris lives in Newcastle upon Tyne and tells stories at festivals and clubs in schools, hospitals, health centres, prisons, community venues, historic sites, Sure Start centres, theatres, art centres, nurseries and old people’s homes.
