Marion Leeper

Marion has been telling stories ever since she can remember. Her sparkly, multi-sensory storytelling enchants the youngest children, people with special needs, and adults too. She works in and around East Anglia, in schools, libraries, museums – even, once, a nuclear bunker – and appears at festivals including Womad and the East Anglian Storytelling Festival. She has taken her early years show, Stories in the Dark, to the prestigious storytelling festivals Beyond the Border and Festival at the Edge. As first Bard of Cambridge in 2016 she has performed at many local spoken word events, and has toured her adult shows, The Kitchen Cat and Orlando Furioso, around the UK and the US. She writes about using stories in education (her book Developing Early Maths through Story) is published by PPS books. Choose an existing show from her website, or she can tailor a storytelling session or workshop especially for you.
