The Crick Crack Club

Promoter & programmer of performance storytelling: contemporary adaptations of international traditional narrative (folktale, fairytale, myth, epic), primarily for adult audiences. We run regular performances, tours, festivals, residencies, museum Lates, courses & conferences, and tour The Fabularium Fairytale Festival in the summer months.

Our mission pivots around giving audiences high-quality experiences of contemporary adaptations of international traditional narrative (folktale, fairytale, myth and epic) made and performed by outstanding storytellers.

For 30 years we have pioneered performance storytelling as a contemporary performance art. We have defined an artform, established markets for it, developed and mentored artists, built and developed audiences, and gained acceptance from venues and funders.

We interested in the stories and we’re interested in audiences.

We have a remarkable track record and are experts in our field.
