Storytelling and Film

From November 2020, I shall be writing for Cumbria magazine – Cumbrian folklore and superstition.

I was interviewed for “Lancs Live” in August 2020 – “The Bard of Cumberland: Cumbria’s storyteller of ghosts, boggarts, witches and vampires”

Storytelling projects with local radio – Cando FM (Furness area) and Lake District Radio.

March, 2020: an interview with internationally renowned, The Folklore Podcast. I discussed the Druids, Hedge Druidry, Arthurian legend in Cumbria, and local folklore – vampires, boggarts, and woodwose. Also some North American and Tibetan folklore for good measure.

I also make short films and sketch series with Bardsea-Green Films. We make “one minute films” – storytelling and film – folklore within one minute.
