Since 2003 performers Ron Fairweather and Fergus McNicol  have worked together as Macastory  delivering themed storytelling into schools, libraries and festivals all over Scotland. Macastory’s priority is to provide a live experience of storytelling and singing while also encouraging the audience to interact with the stories and songs through participation in the performances and by taking part in workshops.

This experience is designed to engage and inspire the love of storytelling and song.Our aim is to teach storytelling, songwriting  and literacy  skills by enhancing imagination and aspiration which in turn will develop a greater sense of self esteem.

We can also come into the school to launch the project with an interactive storytelling performance.

We have found that this model   works very well and gives the participants a connection with who they will see on the screen.
