Andy Messer

I’m a professional storyteller and writer who has spent the last 25 years working in schools. I also works part-time as the living history officer at Sheffield Manor Lodge, a ruined Tudor manor house.

As a history graduate I love bringing the past to life by becoming a historical character.These characters include Thonis the Egyptian embalmer, Aryon the ancient Greek doctor or Sergeant Major Higgins a WW1 RSM.

I'm passionate about telling stories from different times and cultures as they help pupils understand how our ancestors viewed their world.

The short video above will give you a flavour of my storytelling style and some of what I do.

I collaborated with Bob on STAINLESS a  graphic novel which I wrote and was published in 2014.
