Sally Pomme Clayton loves fairytales and myths, those narratives passed by word of mouth for generations, before being written down. She believes the richly metaphorical stories of the oral tradition are a way of connecting to the voices of our ancestors, receiving something, re-making it, keeping it alive, and passing it on.

“Virtuoso storyteller, Sally Pomme Clayton, has that rare gift of being able to transport the listener to other worlds, by completely inhabiting those worlds herself. Her stories are authentic and full of shades and nuances of colour, she uses language like a painter. Her telling goes right through the skin, and settles deep in the marrow of the listening bones – a wondrous experience.” Venue magazine, Bristol
