As Adrinskald, he has appeared at every Jorvik Viking Festival and event since they first commissioned him nearly three years ago: Entertaining the crowds, writing to commission, descending to the level of the child and generally truly becoming. Experience a visit from Colin the Kobold, discover the mythic being within.

Future Festival work

A recent suggestion that festival organisers incorporate my storytelling evening at Williams Bar into their schedules has resulted in a staggering 6 festival organisers responding favourably. A special night will be created and fitted in to the programme.

Past Festival work

The River festival of York commissioned me to create a model of the river with each part producing a story. Follow the trail of Margaret and how her family brought the cocoa beans to the chocolate factories, A whole world of folklore, country lore and magical myth travel with us along the way. Suitable for the very young too.

The Festival of Light in York saw a commission from York’s Literary Officer called Shadows of an Ancient City Shine with sunrises, sparks of life and a whole city of York on a table. All ages and families too. (Best in the dark)

Essence of Journey is a collaboration project with Arts Action York and York Archaeological Trust to bring artists, storytellers, writers, children and community groups together in an exciting interactive creative way. The culmination being performances and displays of created banners during the Jorvik Viking festival.
Grants are being awaited for the after schools and community parts of the project in the mean time however you can join in by engaging services: Sessions of storytelling and gathering with a specially created essence of journey group, work items from which will go on to the Viking festival.
