Meet our storytellers:
Kate Corkery – ICC talented storyteller-in-residence, has shared her captivating stories in schools, festivals and theatres across the world. Kate particularly enjoys telling stories from Ireland and uses her versatile voice to conjure up characters such as Molly and the cheeky little Leprechaun.
Tuup, (a.k.a. Godfrey Duncan), was born in West London of Guyanese parents and is one of the most inspirational storytellers from the African – Caribbean community. He tells lively tales using his skills as a musician, to weave music and rhymes through his stories. He’ll have you singing, and tapping, and jiggling and maybe even dancing before his tale is out.
