LICHFIELD STORYTELLERS

Brilliant Storytelling from Lichfield - England

After Mat, Cath and Paul resolved to establish Lichfield Storytellers after a couple of hours chatting in two pubs one chilly Saturday in March 2015 (looking for the right venue, having a couple of drinks and eating pork pies), we reckon that we’ve come a long way.

We have established a unique club in Lichfield and an enviable reputation with national and international storytellers, with local community organisations and with our ever-changing audience. Maria and Christine have been super additions to our friendly team.

We have a great venue - The King’s Head - which hosts lots of artistic events in Lichfield with all manner of live music and other clubs in addition to our own.

BUT TIMES HAVE CHANGED

We started bringing brilliant storytelling ONLINE in October 2020 - so take a look at who's coming to play with us and how to book your sofa - in the front row - below.
