Chris is an accomplished story teller and singer and is guaranteed to entertain any audience. He has been telling stories professionally for over 10 years and during such time has proudly held the title of Biggest Liar in Shropshire. Chris' story telling career started at junior school, where he began telling stories to pupils and teachers. He was an instant success!
His West Midlands or 'Brummie' background bring colour and life to his tales, which originate from all over the globe.
Audiences have included schools, folk festivals, street entertainment, after-dinner speaking, story telling festivals, adults with learning difficulties, National Trust events, residential homes and excluded/expelled pupils. He has also performed at the Hay Literary Festival where he is famous for his story taxi (just ask!).
His main criteria is simple; the story must entertain and interest an audience (educate and inspire are often in there too). Chris is well known for his scary stories and his ability to tailor a story to suit his audience and surroundings.
Chris uses an active style of telling and loves to involve members of his audience in the act. Performances can also be sprinkled with music hall ditties and he claims to knowing all the verses to songs such as “I’m forever blowing bubbles” and “It’s a long way to Tipperary”.
