Chloë is a raconteur with strong stage presence.
Her repertoire is an enchanting blend of traditional stories from many cultures, informed by years of travel, plus original stories for today’s audiences.
No scripts, no reading: this is genuine verbal jazz.
“A voice like chocolate melting over a bonfire”.
“Fantastic imagery, funny, I loved it!” – Anna Saunders, Director, Cheltenham Poetry Festival
Sold out at Cheltenham Literature Festival 2019.
Chloë brings fiction alive with historical fact – she’s worn chain mail and wielded sword and longbow, she’s ridden hard across country, slept under the stars.
She knows how fast a princess can’t run in a gown; she’s been nearly trampled in the tiltyard; has taunted besiegers from the battlements.
You’ll believe these stories with all your senses.
Modern day stories, inspired by tradition, delight audiences with long distance love, garden envy and a fantasy of genteel assassination.
Plus Chloë’s signature story, the thrilling Legend of the Rollright Stones.
She has that kind of voice… Mild/moderate gory detail, content is mainly unsettling.
Beware the creepy little tale that follows you home.
Be careful what you wish for!
Designed to entertain adults.
The mistletoe bride seizes her last chance of happiness and old Babushka remembers the party years.
Mostly traditional stories, joyously retold with Chloë’s energy and humour.
Feelgood stories packed with wit and unseasonal warmth.
How to save dad from the devil on New Year’s Eve, and trick a minister of agriculture.
Thunderous Thor goaded by Loki trick the Ice Giants. In drag.
Whimsical wisdom plus delicious trickery from around the world. And an original story from Chloë’s travels: so strange and romantic, you’ll wish it were all true!
All fresh, hot off the tongue.
Not a snowflake in sight.
Beautiful, witty and spinetingling tales of gardens and the natural world.
