Pauline was telling stories at The James Hutton Institute’s BioBlitz event on the 28th July. She told stories of the plants and animals of our world and how they effect the world around us. PLUS! She got to meet a bee and a purring wildcat!
Well it was a beautiful sunny day in the Broch on Saturday where I was lucky to be telling stories with Elsie the Fishwife! We had a few great wee audiences of mums, dads, grannies and grandas as well as the bairns of Fraserburgh. Elsie helped me tell the story of the Fisherman and the Flounder. She does a really good nagging auld wife impression. Disappointingly for Elsie, she didn’t find husband number 5 though – but it wasn’t for the lack of trying to chat up any mannie over 50 she thought looked eligible!
Thanks to Super Saturdays who invited us along – they have a monthly event in Saltoun Square and there is always a different theme with bands, stalls and other entertainments!

Well it’s a busy week ahead with a couple of parties, a couple of tours but… this coming weekend Pauline will be Storyteller In Residence at the 2017 Stonehaven Folk Festival!
“On Saturday 8th July between 1 and 2.15, join me for the family show – storytelling for all ages at St Bridgets Hall (just before the World Paper N Comb Championship!)
On Sunday 9th July between 12.45 and 1.45 come and join us for a “lazy Sunday afternoon storytelling “workshop” – learn about some tall stories and how to make them come alive.” All are welcome but this is aimed for a family audience, if under 16 then accompanied by an adult. This will be held at the recreation club. (This event is free as part of the “Connecting Communities” project sponsored by Aberdeenshire Council)
Here I am on the festival web page – hope to see you all there! 😀
Well Fizzy and I are now back from the Glastonbury Festival! It has been a wonderful, tiring, chaotic, hot, hardworking, load of fun!
But there’s not rest to be had – today was Jack’s Superhero birthday party in Stonehaven – Happy Birthday Jack! 😀 Keep your eyes on this page, lots of announcements to come!
Coming up on the 19th May, I’ll be telling stories and singing a few wee ballads at Lumphanan – please join us 🙂
I was caught a couple of weekends ago telling this story at the Anatomy Rooms while my daughter Molly and I were in taking part in Jason Nelson’s “The Listener”

Monday evening’s Beer and Bloodthirsty Tales at Underdog was amazing. Fiona Jane Brown and I told tales from the Castlegate’s bloody past and the audience was wonderful! We’re performing this Friday evening at Ma Cameron’s in a set called “Spooky Shenanigans at the Sow Croft Inn.” Fully booked already I’m afraid.
I’ll be back at Underdog telling tales of terror on the 22nd May with Hidden Aberdeen Tours telling stories with Fiona-Jane Brown and Haworth Hodgkinson (writer & musician) will be providing some atmospheric music and poetry. Thanks Amie Bain Photography for the photographs!
