Stroyteller Richard York at Queen Eleanor Primary School PNL-160903-103644001

Youngsters from Queen Eleanor Primary School were welcomed at the homebuilder’s Fairfields site where they nestled down in a comfortable show house to be regaled by the tales of professional storyteller Richard York.

Richard, a member of the Society or Storytelling, entertained children from across the year groups.

He also played a selection of instruments, including a Greek lyre and a medieval Celtic-style harp used by traditional storytellers, to add to the soundscape of his narratives.
