Daniel Hill - Artistic Director

Hello, Dan here, I’ve been telling stories with and for young people for a very long time. I have produced and directed a ridiculous number of productions, arts education projects, and events that have seen me get up to many sane and silly things from attacking a pub dressed as a zombie to running workshops for teachers and librarians. When I’m not telling stories my head is usually looking up to the stars, as I endeavour to make sense of this place and time we’ve found ourselves in.

Lily Coull - Co-Artistic Director

Hey, I’m Lily! I’m a keen filmmaker and storyteller. I love sharing tales and opening people’s minds, into new and possibly taboo ideas, whether that be in a film or on a stage. When I’m not working on a project I enjoy clearing my head with a run or expressing myself with a fun, new makeup look.

James Henderson - Co-Artistic Director

James is the name. I love making things, whether that be using my camera, paintbrush or whatever I can get my hands on really. Having grown up surrounded by theatre and film, I've always had a keen interest in telling and sharing stories. In my 23 years of being alive I've been incredibly lucky to have had numerous opportunities within both mediums; taking on a wide variety of creative roles in plays, short films and documentaries. Blue and pink is probably my favourite combination of colours, not that you asked. All for collaboration, trying stuff out and making it all up as I go along.

Matt Beames - Associate Writer

Hi, I'm Matt.  I'm a ravenous reader and consumer of stories in any kind of format, and have been writing and tell them myself for well over 15 years now.  I'm fascinated by myth and folklore, and love tales that mix the fantastical and the mundane to create true magic.  I'd choose winter over summer and moonlight over sunlight, but love to find the beauty in all of them.  Other passions beyond stories and writing include coffee, noodles and board games.

David Lewington - Associate Composer

Ahoy! I am David and I am a musical sort. My first motivation for writing music is to tell a story - doesn't matter what kind or where it takes us! I like especially to work with young voices, helping them to grow in confidence, ready to take on the world. The stories I've told (and thus the music I've penned) so far range from raving with Robin Hood to jazzin' it up with Joan of Arc; from Toad of Toad Hall's folksy flora and fauna to the heavy heavy monster sound of Alice's Adventures. And plenty in between. Beyond the whooshes and the tubular bells of working life I can often be found on two wheels, dealing with a puncture by the side of the road.
