‘I watched and listened to your tales with great pleasure. Such a different way to spend a pleasant evening! Thank you. I haven’t been told a story for getting on 60 years and I relived the experience with some relish.’
‘When we have gone to the pictures previously we may have enjoyed the film or not but it doesn’t stay with us as a night listening to you does. We cuddled in and let your story take us away to Camelot. (If you decide to sit on my lap again please give me ten minutes warning so I can take my blood pressure tablets… !)
(Sir Gawain and the Green Knight, Bucks)
‘It was so beautiful. I was in tears by the end.’
‘Thank you for a fantastic performance on Saturday night. The village is talking about it and those that didn’t come wished they had. I have had nothing but praise from everyone who attended and this is all thanks to you. I was absolutely spellbound by your performance. It was a fantastic night all round.’
‘I am just writing on behalf of my wife and myself to thank you for a superb evening. We were completely absorbed in your storytelling. I am chairman of our village dramatic society and get involved in treading the boards, and I loved your wonderful presentation skills, body language, singing ability and playing the lovely dulcimer. We were totally entranced. You were superb.

‘We have had 38 shows here, and someone has just said to me this is the best yet!’
(Interval comment from village organiser, Sir Gawain and the Green Knight, Northants)
‘We were entertained by Cat Weatherill, who is truly a modern day troubadour, able as both storyteller and musician. Her tales of knights, maidens, love, lust, magic, courage and adventure proved to be an enthralling experience for me, and for everyone else who was there. We were all hanging on her every word!
Her stories, like all good tales, had suspense, mystery, drama, excitement, fun and pathos. Told with music, song and simple but effective lighting they became an intimate theatrical experience that was so good, I even forgot the shortcomings of the hall chairs!
