Hillfoots Tales is a fledgling Community Interest Company (CIC), based in Clackmannanshire, which is connecting people and place through the magic of storytelling.
“We had a wonderful evening and every family I spoke to commented on how much they had enjoyed the event. The stories kept everyone enthralled throughout. The use of puppets and soft toys captured the attention of our younger listeners and the local tale was enjoyed by all (with many commenting that they had not heard it before).
Thank you for supporting our story and supper event. Your exciting stories were thoroughly enjoyed by all. The evening was made even more magical thanks to your input!”
“In the summer of 2019, Jo led a workshop for Primary 7 pupils based on the Ochil Fairy Tales. The children took part in a variety of activities: painting scenes on stones, reciting poetry, listening to the stories being told and exploring the nature that is referred to in the tales. The children were fascinated to learn about their local folklore and asked lots of questions. It was a valuable experience for them to hear stories spoken and led them to explore storytelling techniques themselves.”
