Talks and Tales


Clare Goodall is a Storyteller and Musician. Her stories and music tend to be from Ancient Greece, Ancient Rome and the European Medieval, Renaissance and Tudor worlds.


“I’ve adapted the Iliad into a 55 minute show and, with a fellow musician Lizzie Gutteridge, created  ‘Firestarter: John Ball and the Great Revolt’. I tell the tale of the Peasants Revolt of 1381 while she live loops medieval music. I’ve performed at the British Museum, Westminster Abbey, The Tower of London, Arundel Castle, Beaumauris Castle, the Edinburgh Fringe, the Brighton Fringe, numerous pubs & cafes as well as to people living with Alzheimers – which has proved to be challenging and rewarding.”
