After Dinner Speaking
My experience in comedy and my knowledge of Scottish history and myths means I can provide entertaining stories at corporate events and private functions, no matter how large or small.
If you would like to add a special touch to your wedding, gathering or any other special occasion, ceremony or celebration, my award winning storytelling can provide it. Whether you want traditional tales, stories of Scotland’s or Edinburgh’s history, Celtic myths or folktales, Edinburgh’s ghost stories, or funny tales about the characters and dramas that make Scotland’s history so fascinating, booking a storyteller with years of experience in comedy, public speaking and tour guiding guarantees your event will be a success.
I can tell tales of love for a wedding, anniversary or renewal of vows; tales of growth and adventure for a naming ceremony; or for a memorable holiday, family gathering or celebration, magical tales from Scottish folklore as well as the horror and humour of Scotland’s history. Whisky and witches, battles and clans, faithful dogs and treacherous Lords, murdered Kings and vengeful Queens, ghosts and secrets, not to mention all those mysteries under the cobblestones, I have tales of all and more besides! Just let me know which ones you and yours would like to hear.
“We came over from the USA to Edinburgh for a family reunion, and booked Fiona on recommendation from our tour guide. So glad we did! She told stories at our dinner in our hotel, all about Edinburgh’s fascinating history. Mary Queen of Scots, Bonnie Prince Charlie, ghosts and mysteries we hadn’t known about as well as some pretty gross information about Auld Reekie’s toilet habits (which she wisely saved for after dessert!) She had us laughing and gasping with horror in equal measure! There were 16 0f our clan and the unanimous verdict from us all – “Brilliant!” ” – Jim McDonald, Austin, Texas. 28/07/2016
Perhaps you want to treat your employees or clients to a relaxing, entertaining evening at the end of a conference or annual meeting.
” We booked Fiona for our annual corporate dinner, where our leading employees get together from all over the world – this year we chose Scotland and held the event in Stirling Castle. Fiona kept us enthralled and laughing throughout the evening, a well deserved treat for our fantastic staff.”
