Welcome benevolent seeker of tales...

Melissa Baker is a storyteller, director and performer. She brings audiences inside her storytelling caravan to relive the atmosphere of an old wandering wagon and the comfortable closeness it brings. It's the perfect place for listening. Children loll on the sheepskins, stretch out or sit up on the bench seats. Adults huddle close in too. It's often a tight fit but once everyone's settled it's a surprisingly infinite space.
