Who We Are
Engaging. Participatory. Inspiring Creativity. This is what makes our storytelling Epic.
Since Amy and Chip began storytelling in 2007, Epic Tales storytellers have enthralled hundreds of thousands of listeners around the world – including regular appearances at Glastonbury Festival, representing Roald Dahl on ITV, and presenting the globally-renowned Oxford Reading Tree’s Traditional Tales.
Our carefully honed style always puts the listener first, which is just one of the reasons why educators have found it to be a demonstrably powerful learning tool; children from all backgrounds have seen vast improvements to their attainment, confidence, and well-being – often after just one hour. In fact, our Epic Storyteller Chip wrote the EU’s guidance on using storytelling in classrooms.
There is only one thing we love more than sharing a good story – and that is helping you to share good stories!
