Artemis Storytelling

Katy Cawkwell

"It was great, it was superb, it was magical, it was enthralling" Ilkley Literature Festival Blog


"Katy’s storytelling style is fluent, eloquent, flowing and altogether faultless... she captivates the audience with beautiful, well voiced characters and understated, but incredibly effective, mannerisms...  joyous, visceral and visual.” Adrian Johnson, Arts Council England


Katy has been working as a professional storyteller since 1996 in venues across the UK and Europe, including a national tour of performances of The Kingdom of the Heart, in collaboration with cellist Sarah Llewellyn-Jones, produced by Adverse Camber and supported by Arts Council England funding.  Her shows have appeared three times at the Barbican Pit Theatre and Beyond the Border International Storytelling Festival in Wales.  In 2008, she was one of four storytellers shortlisted for the Arts Foundation Storytelling Fellowship; this led to another performance at the Barbican and a spot on BBC Radio 3’s The Verb.  


Katy also works in educational and corporate settings, including Royal Opera House Adult Education, English National Opera, The Barbican, The British Museum, The National Gallery, several government departments countless schools and companies large and small.


She recently moved to Topsham and is excited about getting to know the local landscape and exploring storytelling possibilities in Devon.
