Giles Abbott started storytelling in 1999 in response to sudden, but not total, sight loss. Since then he has become an award-winning storyteller who just happens to be the UK’s only professional blind storyteller.
His repertoire includes Iron-Age myth from British and Norse traditions, Greek myths and folk tales from around the world.
He is the Storyteller in Residence at the Last Tuesday Society’s Museum Of Curiosities, and a regular at storytelling and literature festivals. He also works with both children and adults using storytelling to promote confidence, increase literacy and inspire a love of words.
