Guided Walks and Storytelling for Education
with Rose Rylands Ba Hons PGCE
“Rose is a charismatic storyteller who can really capture the attention of young people. She is brimming with energy and life, and brings humour, mystery and a passionate love of the natural world to her stories. She also points towards important truths and can reconnect her listeners with a deeper sense of meaning.”

Stories that delight, engage, inform, entertain and inspire. Stories for curriculum. The North York Moors and Coast, Whitby and Robin Hood's Bay provide a rich and storied landscape brimming with folklore and incredible histories. Maritime adventure, shipwrecks, smuggling, Dracula, Captain Cook, the great Benedictine abbey ruins and tales ranging from dinosaurs to Dracula, vikings and merfolk to ghost ships, whaling, legendary lifeboat rescues, infamous outlaws, witches and ancient magical woodlands.
A wealth of local history, lore and legend, painted in pictures through story. More vital today than ever, storytelling can bring us into a deeper relationship with the places we visit or live, while awakening us to a magical, multi-dimensional world that is both within us and around us. By stimulating imagination and memory in this way, children find it easier to not only remember words and facts, but to create their own stories.
I run guided walking tours of Whitby, ghost and Dracula walks, and smuggling walks for schools - all with age adaptable content. I also deliver indoor storytelling events in situ at the venue of your stay.
