Tom ‘the Tale Teller’ Phillips began telling his tales to his class on a Friday afternoon before venturing into grown-up storytelling. That was nearly 15 years ago. In this time, Tom has told stories across the land at storytelling clubs, in schools, at festivals big and small, other social clubs (his favourite being a wine and beer club), and literature festivals such as Bradford and Cheltenham.  Tom has always loved stories, from his Dad telling him Brer Rabbit stories at bedtime to telling his own children stories around the fire in the garden, stories and storytelling run through his veins.
