Welcome to The Wild of the Words - story-crafting sessions that offer an eclectic mix of sensory adventure, fire-side folk tales and story spinning strategies taught alongside plenty outdoor-inspired antics and arty activities! We use The Great Outdoors to inspire and resource all our sessions and we focus on introducing young aspiring storytellers to a slightly weird-er, wild-er way of approaching, understanding and expressing ideas within language and literature. Come join us in reinvigorating reading and writing through outdoorsy exploration and discovery!

What families are saying

August 2019
Attended a single session with a 7-year-old and a 3-year-old
Outdoor StoriesRedcatch Community Garden
My daughters and I thoroughly enjoyed outdoors stories from The Wild of the Words, the ancient and magical story was engaging and fun. Pridie was a fantastic story teller and my girls were entranced. Lots of sensory elements with clay and craft to finish off, I would highly recommend.
The Wild of the Words responded:
Thank you so much for your feedback Louise. The clay moulding has certainly been a winner!

September StorytellingThe Rising Sun
Pridie is a fantastic storyteller and her sessions never fail to be brilliant. It’s so unusual to find something with such as good balance of quiet listening and activity. The sessions are really creative. The perfect activity for the under 7s. I even booked Pridie to do a birthday party and the children loved it. Highly recommended.
The Wild of the Words responded:
Thanks so much Kelly. It was such a joy to tell birthday tales and it's great to see you guys at the summer sessions!

Thank you so much Cheryl, it's just brilliant to have children of all ages involved - stories are definitely for everyone!
