Giles Abbott rediscovered the joy of storytelling after sudden and severe, but not total, sight loss booted him out of the world of books. He is the UK’s only professional blind storyteller and is in demand in clubs and festivals all over the UK and internationally. His telling is characterised by his commanding stage presence, rich voice and poetic use of language.

For Ham Library Giles will be telling Elizabethan stories - scary, funny, rude and sometimes shocking! Giles will include a tale we know frightened the young William Shakespeare and a tale of black magic inspired by Dr John Dee.
