These are all from genuine unsolicited e-mails and handwritten cards and letters:
"I have heard some good storytellers, but Mark is the tops. I do hope he will come to us again."
"Mark, your last story has stayed with me. Thank you."
"...controlled, but expressive..."
"An evening to remember - so different from our normal..."
"That was really quite something this afternoon..."
"I was moved to tears by your story and, of course, by the way you told it. So special."
"Mark is a fine storyteller, mixing pathos and humour, movement and stillness to great effect."
"Mark dealt with sensitive topics in a powerful way."
"I was impressed by your very different approach to storytelling and the disturbing and challenging images you conjured..."
And these comments after Hereward of the Fens at the 2017 Earls Barton Literary Festival:
"Blends the feeling of listening to a bard of yesteryear with storytelling in the 21st century."
"His passion for the story and his enthusiasm were evident throughout."
And a Year 6 performance of "Walter Croft" and "Coventry":
"I could close my eyes and imagine being in the story."
"The storyteller's voice brought the trenches to life."
