Truly an elder of the storytelling revival in Britain, his style is one of total improvisation,unbounded charisma and alarming spontaneity. His fabulous capacity for mi micry and ear for a wild story is outstanding.

TUUP has travelled the world extensively, telling stories all over Europe and in both Northern and Southern Africa.

In his role as a creative lyricist, poet, percussionist and vocalist with the highly influential dance music collective, Transglobal Underground, he has performed throughout Europe, Central Asia, Asia and North and South America.

Serious (but funny)
Gem of a performance

London’s liveliest storytelling club-night for adults, run by Nell Phoenix.

Professional storytellers headline the evenings at our intimate, candle-lit space. They spellbind us with stories that have been told and re-told for ever - epics, myths, legends, folk and fairytales.

These tellers transport with their tales, they connect in the moment with the space, the story and the audience, creating an intimate and unique experience. At StoryNight, storytelling is a traditional yet wholly contemporary performance art.

StoryNight is at the grassroots of the London storytelling scene. We have a fun and friendly crowd and the best listening ears in the capital!
At StoryNight we encourage well-honed 10-minute tales from the floor. Speak to Nell on arrival.

And it’s only £7 on the door including wine and nibbles. For details about the next StoryNight, see our Diary page.

Take a punt on any of the (other) storytellers Phoenix finds for her Story Night. This really is storytelling for grown-ups at its absolute best - one of London's best-kept secrets.

Fairy tales are more than true, not because they tell us that dragons exist, but because they tell us that dragons can be beaten.

People did not wait for writing before they told stories
