Taffy Thomas

Lakeland Folktales for Children

Did you know that if you look closely around Scafell Pike in the winter you might find a great dragon?
Or that hidden in the forest around Egremont you might catch a glimpse of the fabled fairy folk? As Taffy launches his latest book, he will perform stories that children love to hear time and again. A family event not to be missed!

Taffy Thomas has performed his stories all over the world. He is artistic director of Tales in Trust, the Northern Centre for Storytelling, based at The Storyteller’s Garden in Grasmere. Taffy is a patron of the Society for Storytelling and became the first Laureate for Storytelling in 2010. In 2001 he was awarded the MBE for services to storytelling and charity.
