Storyteller Directory Entry

A 2nd Gav Cross in the Midlands and Countrywide!

Gav divides his professionl time between Liverpool and Leicester ...

I have been lucky enough to be a storyteller for young people and adults alike for a long time now. Around campfires or in a classroom, stories are a powerful tool that can inspire creativity, thinking and empathy in everyone.

Stories are also a perfect way to kick start your curriculum topic, to deepen and strengthen the writing and learning. Please get in touch to find out more.

I can come to you, PopUp the Immersive space for up to two classes at a time, or close the space for a single class. Time Travel, exploration and imagination. Anything and anywhere is possible.

And I can come to you and tell you a story. Perhaps in your classroom or assembly hall. Perhaps in your 4D Immersive space if you have one.
