June has been storytelling for 30 years, delighting audiences across the UK, South America and Mexico and often weaving her fiddle playing into the spoken narrative. She loves to create new programmes of stories that search out the fulcrum of what is happening now, on a personal level.
As well as her performances for adults, she has worked extensively in London schools and is a member of the Company of Players and Tellers who have worked in Kensington and Chelsea to raise literacy standards over the last 10 years.
She interprets and facilitates public spaces through story – the British Museum (she once told a story in the old library in the presence of former US president, George Bush), Wisley Gardens, Kew Gardens and art galleries including The National Gallery, Saatchi Gallery and The Courtauld Institute working with children on ‘Great Arts Quest’ project.
She has been chair of the Society for Storytelling, has published two books with the History Press and articles in ‘Language Matters.’ She has also written and performed commissions for the Old Royal Naval College, Petrie Museum, the Geffrye Museum, Hackney tower and West Hackney Recreation Spaces.
