Stories need to be told. And they want to be listened too.

Everything we do is Storytelling.

Always entertaining, tales told with a twist. Focused on enthralling and involving
the audience.

Silly stories that guarantee a giggle.
Traditional tales told from a new point of view. Folk tales from around the world, or from across the county.

Brand new stories, found together, to meet your needs.

With enough stories in the back pocket to fill hours, it’s still exciting to find new tales to tell.

What bespoke stories can we make to meet the needs of your audience?

At Parentfolk

As always, have look about, ask a few questions, lets have a chat, what can we plan?


‘There are storytellers and then there’s Gav Cross.

Capturing imaginations, holding little minds captive, delivering stories and terrible tales with a twist, Gav Cross brings a sense of magic and wonderment to his performances. We couldn’t be happier to have brought Gav on board for our ParentFolk family social events. Known for doing things differently our events are about curating unique family experiences, we lead from the front in the alternative family event space and pride ourselves on only working with the best.
Gav has brought a whole new dimension to our offering with his warm presence and epic enthusiasm. As well as being the best storyteller and performer, he is a total professional and wonderfully warm human being with a brilliant outlook and we look forward to working with him again and again.  Highly recommended.’  

Nicola Spindler, Founder, ParentFolk.


‘Gav is a consummate and hilarious spinner of tales and he has that rare ability to engage all ages, children and adults alike. He is also a consummate professional and easy to work with. I can’t recommend this show enough. We will be programming Gav to come back in the very near future for more anarchic fun. There is something wonderfully subversive yet comforting about this work.’

‘Gav is a consummate professional who has once again raised the bar of what is considered funny for children and families.’

Bluecoat, Liverpool


‘Gav Cross treats children like they’re horrible and adults like they’re children and the results are hilarious and magical. Gav brings energy, joy and a refreshing approach to traditional storytelling, getting the audience involved and keeping them on their toes with the unexpected twists and turns of his tales. I highly recommend Gav for any event where you need some lively stories and a lot of laughs.
