The team even offer a bedtime reading package for sleep over parties! 20-yearold Sophie, who is also a second-year student at Newcastle University, said:

“I have been part of stage schools and working with another character company for as long as I can remember, but with my studies I wanted to be able to be flexible and do more, so we set up Tale As Old As Tyne and so far we have done some amazing events.

“As well as private parties, we regularly appear at Sambucas in Forest Hall for “Lunch with…” events, have done summer festivals and fetes, appeared at fayres and entertained children at adult’s parties and appeared at fund raising events. I love every job we do and now we have expanded the team with other experienced princesses we can have more than one at any one time!”

On offer is a range of princesses including Princess Beauty, the Snow Princess, the Ice Queen, Tower Princess, Mermaid Princess and Princess Cinders.
