About

Howdy! I'm Becky, storyteller, cellist and founder of Beanstalk Arts and front lady of family band 'Becky, Boris and the Beats' and on this page I'll be sharing live streamed storytelling sessions, song videos and our music! As lockdown eases, we're moving from daily streams to live stories 3 times a week on a Monday, Wednesday and Friday, and you'll also have access to our back catalogue of stories (45 livestreams so far from lockdown - all with a different story!) 

If you sign up, you'll be charged $5 on sign up, then $5 on the first of each month, and you'll be immediately able access our streams which until the end of the summer term (June 17th). We'll have stories live at 10.30am every Monday, Wednesday and Friday (which you can catch up with later!), with a different story every time, and a wealth of resources and activity ideas provided with each story! On Tuesdays and Thursdays we'll share again some of the favourites from our back catalogue (or of course you can catch up on any of our stories anytime!). We'll be taking a break and pausing subscriptions in August whilst we work out quite what the Autumn term will look like! 

As a wee bit of background, I'm a SE London dwelling mum of two - I've been running Beanstalk Arts (formerly Nimble Tots) storytelling and music classes in South East London, as well as delivering tales for organisations including the Royal Albert Hall, Southbank Centre, Royal College of Music and the Horniman Museum for the past 6 years, and the lovely Martha and Holly, who are popping up on some of our livestreams, have also delivered classes with us over the past few years. With my family band 'Becky, Boris and the Beats' we've already released one album of original family story songs which has sold around 700 copies, and have performed sold out afternoon gigs for families at the Amersham Arms and the Ivy House. I love to tell a mixture of traditional and original stories that are full of positive role models, strong characters and lots of humour, and try my best to make music linked to these stories that is palatable to both children and their grown ups :) - during lock down I'll tell a different one of these tales every day, and have some ideas for arts and crafts projects, music making or other invitations to play that I'll be doing with my 3 and 7 year old too. 

I actually originally launched this page in 2019 when I was undergoing breast cancer treatment as a way to keep sharing stories during my chemotherapy and recovery from surgery, hence why I tend to have entirely different hair in each picture! I loved doing these sessions, but whilst March 2020 was *going* to be my return to more face to face work, with the world has gone a wee bit topsy turvy, it's going to be online for a bit longer, but I'm nonetheless looking forward to singing, chatting, telling stories and making music with you on here!
