Paul Magrs teams up with Moriarty in “Travel Folktales for Kids”


2017 guest Paul Magrs, onstage with fellow guests Katy Manning and Panda.

If you and your family are dreaming of a summer getaway, but can’t quite manage it (or are stuck in yet more beastly weather), let Paul Magrs help you get away from it all. His new podcast miniseries, Travel Folktales for Kids, has just begun its run on the Guardian website.

The series will feature five new rendition of classic folktales, rewritten by Magrs and read by Andrew Scott — known to many as the mad Moriarty in BBC’s Sherlock. The first installment takes us to Cornwall, where we hear the classic story of Jack the Giant Killer.


Set in St. Michael’s Mount, the origin of the legend of the giant Cormoran, the story presents a Magrs-ian twist on the popular legend that’s fun for kids and parents to listen to together. Future installments will transport listeners to Croatia, Mallorca, Tuscany, and the Algarve. The series is supported by Airbnb, and is free to listen to regardless of region.

Listen to the first installment here!

And be sure to stay tuned for future installments and share them with the family!
