The Yarnsmith of Norwich, Historical Storyteller and Author of 'Tudor Tales'

I tell authentic stories in historical costume from the Saxon, Medieval and Tudor periods, albeit using modern language. I also bring replica objects, riddles and all sorts of fun to my sessions!

I also published my first book, Tudor Tales,' in 2015 and I will be performing tales from the book at venues all over the UK, including for the Shakespeares Birthplace Trust. I am also working on a companion collection of Medieval Tales.

Dave Tong had children and adults alike gripped with his stories despite many distractions and wild weather. It was a delight to see that storytelling still holds huge appeal when done as well as this.
