Welcome to Wild About Story!
At Wild about Story, we are, literally, wild about story. Stories that have travelled since time began, in many forms, as the written word in books, through the arts and through the oral traditions of singing and storytelling. Established by storyteller and singer, Tracey Collins, story is the thread throughout all that Wild about Story offers. Our work is based on the knowledge that stories sung or read and especially stories told aloud in the old way - from memory - have a special and magical power. Tracey is a popular storyteller for children (known as Mrs Stanley) and a facilitator of inspiring singing experiences for people of all ages, working in schools, libraries, hospitals and community spaces. Tracey is also the curator of Wild about Story's Bookshop, now a permanent Pop Up at Cedar Farm, open three days per week and selling a range of beautiful and carefully curated books from a lovingly renovated library trolley. You can find Wild about Story Bookshop
upstairs on the mezzanine floor, above the Food Hall in
The Barn at Cedar Farm in West Lancashire.
