Harken unto my words & hold your tongues for I have a tale to tell...
 
Check out my video promo by Mark Curwood...
 
My name’s Dave Tonge and I am an author, historian and storyteller. I’ve been telling tales since 1999. Prior to that I had a very varied career which in itself would make a good story, although alas far too long to tell here! Suffice to say that by the early 1990s I was unhappy with the road I was travelling, went back into learning and by 2000 found myself with a BA & MA in English history and even the first year of a PhD under my belt!
 
At the same time I was working for the Norfolk Museum Service where I discovered storytelling and along with Stewart Alexander formed Past-Imagined, Historic Tales Tellers. I ran away from my PhD to become an Itinerant teller of tales traveling the land, telling tales at museums, heritage sites, festivals, fayres and schools all over the UK.
 
Although Stewart and I still work together, the majority of my work now is as the Yarnsmith of Norwich and as you will see from my events diary, the places that I have performed and recommendations, I am  very busy. That said I am always looking for new places to tell!
 
I have also published my first book of Tudor Tales for the History Press, which is available direct from me or via the History Press and Amazon websites. for more details go to my Latest News page.
