N early all performances (except some school shows and workshops) are priced depending on the type /complexity/length/number of performers/amount of travel etc. 

However, as a rough guide, a one-man storytelling show lasting between one hour and one and a half hours would cost £150 (plus petrol costs)
For many outdoor events I will liaise beforehand with the organisers, to perform short shows several times over the day (adding up to around an hour to an hour and a half performance time).

Feel free to contact me to discuss your ideas and for a no-obligation quote for a show that will fit your needs.  I can work on my own but equally have access to a whole troop of talented performers and musicians.
You might want a mix of walkabout characters, puppetry, storytelling, music or the whole lot!  I can usually arrange such a mix and match package and come up with a competitive quote.

Following a quotation, if you wish to make a booking, please contact me (by email or preferably by phone) to check the date you require is available and to confirm booking etc.
Payment is preferred on the day of performance - though I realise some big organisations and schools need 30 day terms etc.
Commissioned Shows

If you have a special theme or historical period that needs more specific tales, I am happy to research and perform new commissioned pieces.  There is an extra charge for research however, but I do try to keep costs reasonable - especially if I can re-use stories.
Previous commissioned shows include:
Tales of the King and Tudor Tall Tales
(with John Freeman for English Heritage)
Snake Tales
(for Exeter RAMM Museum)
Wild and Wooly Tales - Dartmoor Animals and Landscape
(for Tavistock Library)
Tales of  the Fianna
(with Jon Freeman for "Festival At The Edge" storytelling festival)
Axe Age, Sword Age! - Viking and Saxon stories
(with Clive Pig - Crediton Library)
