Collection: Bernadette Russell

Storyteller, author, kindness campaigner, tree planter, dreamer.

Bernadette Russell is a proud champion of kindness, wonder, hope, joy and FUN! She writes books and performs original and traditional stories everywhere- including cabarets, sheltered housing, schools, parks, gardens, forests, vintage clothes shops, launderettes, beaches, in peoples beds, once even inside a Police Box! Bernadette loves being outside and can often be found in the woods. She writes stories on walls, chalks poetry onto pavements and leaves magical notes inside strangers pockets. 

Bernadette has worked with People United on a project spending years making posters for phone boxes, writing stories on walls, and chalking poetry onto pavements. This commission gave her the opportunity to re-imagine billboards, bus stops and phone boxes as places where stories and questions could be shared by strangers, and hope and the future considered. She is also currently developing a series of new tree and urban wildlife stories to be told outside, in the forest, by firelight.

Specialising in 21st century re-telling of traditional stories as well as performing and writing her own, Bernadette has been commissioned to create children's story shows and delivers theatre, storytelling, creative writing and kindness workshops for schools and adults in the U.K and U.S. 

For the last few years she has been one of the team of artists working with seniors on the Meet Me At The Albany project at the Albany Theatre in Deptford. Creating podcasts, storytelling shows, poetry and installations with the seniors there and in sheltered housing throughout Lewisham. Bernadette has also delivered workshops for Phoenix Housing Association and shows for The Posh Club (Duckies) as well as creating her own pop up tea parties for sheltered housing.
