Dave Tonge - Storyteller, Historian and Author

General Details

I tell authentic folk tales from the Saxon, Medieval and Tudor periods, albeit using modern language. I also tell world tales and bring replica objects, riddles and all sorts of fun to my sessions! I perform all over the UK at festivals, fayres, museums, heritage sites, libraries and schools, performing to both adults and children.

I've published three books, 'Tudor Folk Tales,' in 2015,  'Norfolk Folk Tales for Children' in 2018 and 'Medieval Folk Tales for Children' in 2020.

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.
