Katy Cawkwell

Katy’s introduction to storytelling came from seeing the Company of Storytellers as a teenager. She started telling whilst studying Classics at Oxford in 1996, where she also founded and ran an extremely successful storytelling club. Katy has developed a repertoire of clear and powerful storytelling performances for both adult and family audiences, drawing especially on British and Norse traditions. She has performed in venues right across Britain, from telling a tale of Loki in a burial chamber on Anglesey, to condensing Wagner's entire Ring Cycle to 20 minutes at the Barbican! Katy paused her career to start a family, but is now back performing – currently focusing on her collaborative work with cellist Sarah Llewellyn-Jones.
