Watch your latest free video here!
Epic Tales have entertained and inspired listeners of all ages since 2007 – in schools, theatres, libraries, museums and more, all across the UK and around the world!

Why 'Epic Tales Online'?
With the COVID-19 outbreak introducing many grown-ups and children to home schooling whilst teachers race to support both them and the children of key workers still attending school, we're doing our bit to help.
Every Monday at 9:30am, we'll release a new and free folk tale – as online videos, PDFs, and a podcast – plus bonus resources to enhance your story-led learning experience:
two different tellings of every story to help children grow their literacy skills
a weekly Creative Challenge – send your creations to us and feature in our Friday video
a weekly podcast with creative teachers discussing fun ways to draw out each tale's curriculum links.
So with all that said, it's time for the...
