About Helen

Based in York, UK

Storytelling Experience

Since 2003, I have provided ghostly events in York usually – a range of tours, indoor storytelling, haunted pub trails and dining outs for adult audiences. I’ve also delivered talks on ghosts and the paranormal for the Women’s Institute, Exploring the Exraordinary conference in York and Bradford Literature Festival.  I was the first person, as far as I know, to run a haunted pub tour in York.
