Janina Vigurs (noun; Ya-nee-na V-eye-gers) is a professional oral storyteller and play-maker, who rejoices in the ridiculous. She tells tales to little folk from memory that live in her heart and bones. She’s also astonishingly good at facilitating play for small people and generally mucking about. Janina has been doing this for nearly 15 years and hasn’t been found out yet.

She tells folk tales, fairy tales, some of which are well known, some which bear only a vague recognition to a distant memory but all of which are relatable.

Janina quite often works in schools, nurseries, festivals, private parties and once in a Shetland pony stable. It was snug.

Past and current clients include The National Trust, Penguin Random House, Exeter University, Cambridge University, Glastonbury and Ida (aged 4).
