Drawn from European folk and fairy tale traditions, Hannah Brailsford weaves together an evening of stories that explore what happens when the dynamic of ice and fire meet. Whether it’s the mother whose icy heart desires the burning flame of youth or the young man who defeats fire with ice, her tales will take the audience on a playful and poignant journey to warm even the coldest of souls.


Hannah is a professional storyteller who tells both traditional and modern tales to young and old alike. Driven by a passion to engage and inspire communities with oral storytelling, she has been described as, ‘Captivating, compelling, high-energy and fun, a storyteller of irresistible and charming tales’. She runs Tiny Tales Storytellers for children, schools and families and is the resident storyteller at The Cliffs Pavilion for HQ Theatres. In 2016 she co-founded Spinning Yarns Theatre to bring storytelling to adult audiences with a collective of Essex based tellers through monthly ‘Voice Box’ nights in Southend on Sea
