talking tales

storytelling to inspire

Kevin Graal is a highly skilled children’s storyteller with a repertoire of interactive stories, riddles, songs and rhymes from around the world.

Storytelling in education

Kevin is also an inspiring educator, working with an impressive range of partners from schools and community groups to leading arts and educational organisations such as Tate Modern, the British Library and the British Council.

Charisma and experience combined

Kevin’s innate way with words - inherited from his Irish family - has been honed by more than 30 years’ experience in early years settings, schools, museums, art galleries, conference centres and training venues. His finely tuned storytelling combines careful planning with playful improvisation and is always filled with laughter, music and imagination.

Kevin Graal is a great storyteller who brings thoughts, feelings, and the music in words directly to children.
