The Unbound Storytellers are a talented team of performers dedicated to providing high-quality storytelling for the local community.
Our Storytellers travel out to all manner of venues and special events to tell great stories for the general public, continuing the oral tradition of performance storytelling in which no two retellings are quite the same!
Stories might be specially-commissioned for a particular event or venue, or drawn from our compendium of thrilling tales featuring original stories and reimaginings of classic fables and fairytales. Or - if you want to hear a truly original tale - the Storytellers can improvise a brand new story on the spot based on your suggestions!
The Storytellers have appeared in multiple Unbound projects over the last four years, including our acclaimed pantomime production of Pinocchio in 2017, and the readings of the winning entries of our 500 Words competition in 2019 as part of that year's WhizzFizzFest.

The Unbound Storytellers can be booked for any occasion. If you run a venue / live event and want to entertain your visitors, or if you're from a school / library looking to bring stories to life, then we're here for you!
We can create a brand new story inspired by your venue / event, collect together tales on a particular theme or subject matter, delve into our collection of stories old and new, or create new stories on the spot.

Storytellers get involved in all manner of different projects, spanning live shows of scriped material, improvisation (both solo and as part of a wider cast), and meetinga-and-greeting out and about.
