Event description
A Storytelling Walk in the South Downs. A time for slowing down and reconnecting with ourselves as we reconnect with nature.

About this Event

A gentle walk filled with stories and poetry picked for the landscape as we breathe in the nature surrounding us.

Our walk will be at Seaford Head. We will be taking a walk along the beautiful cliffs, with views of the striking Seven Sisters. Our walk will be about 8 km (5 miles)  with some ascents and descents. Full details will be provided on booking.

We will start and finish at the same place in Seaford - the Seaford Museum. We will aim to finish around 2pm.

Some of the walking, especially on narrower tracks will be done with an inward gaze, in silence, as we pay attention to our feet, our breath, the surroundings and nature around us. Our hearts, eyes and ears will be grateful.

The walk will be for a maximum of 5 people plus myself.

A minimum of 3 people are required for the walk to take place.

About your guide:

I am a qualified Lowland Leader and a Mountain Leader trainee, and work within the guidelines of the Mountain Training Association.

I am a professional storyteller, a poet, a photographer and a creative. I love the outdoors and nature. I will take you on a magical experience combining nature and stories.

​I am experienced in leading groups, and hold an outdoor first aid certificate; insurance and a DBS check.

What people say about my walks:

"Thank you for a wonderful day out. I loved your selection of magical tales - they were so well chosen for the setting and we were all captivated. You are an excellent storyteller"

​"Loved the morning out on the South Downs, on the walk led by Nana, combining professionalism and warmth. The highlight for me was the stories that she told - so well chosen and beautifully told, she held us in her spell as she told them and the stories continued to resonate long after. I highly recommend the walk as a unique experience, combining walking, storytelling and space for your own creative writing. And the rain didn't dampen our spirits, it just added to the special atmosphere."

​"It was magical! The sea and the land and the stories became one. Nana was an absolute star."

"Nana had chosen a beautiful walk for us that took in different aspects of nature on the way; pretty villages churches, country lanes and open marshland and river..... Walking in the footsteps of Virginia Woolf. It was paced well and on the flat so was suitable for the less experienced walker too. Nana was very aware of safety and the well-being of the whole group. There were regular breaks during which Nana told us a traditional tale or legend. All in all a very pleasant way to spend a Sunday."

"Thank you Nana for a wonderful walk, such inspiring scenery, magical storytelling a precious moment of serenity in a world of current 'madness'."
