Welcome to Mexican Tales, a new company created to educate and inspire children, giving them a taste of a distinct, vibrant culture. Through drama, storytelling, craftwork, music and games we aim to foster a lasting interest in this unique country and culture.

H. Robbins, Lawns School, Derby

"...Fantastic! The children were totally involvred in the stories - mouths open!" B. Littlefield, Horsell School
