 "Storytellers ought not to be too tame. They ought to be
 wild creatures who function adequately in society. They are best in disguise. If they lose all their wildness, they cannot
 give us the truest joys."- Ben Okri

Throughout  autumn 2021 carol will be  touring Early Learning Centres throughout Moray with  Give Me back My Drum !  an interactive storytelling session taking children on an imaginative journey using action, rhythm and rhyme to tell traditional tales of the oral tradition from Scotland and other cultures. Drawn form a selection of tales featuring animals and beasties, birds and mythical monsters, these stories connect children to the wild world in a playful way.
