Stealing Thunder


Stealing Thunder is a non-incorported group hosting monthly storytelling performances in Brigsteer, south Cumbria in the UK. Our mission is to bring world-class storytellers to south Cumbria, sharing and promoting the art form at its best and cultivating audiences in the appreciation of the diverse styles and practices in the performance the oral tradition. In 2019 we hosted our first (hopefully of many) storytelling festival in the area, drawing over 300 people both nationally and locally to experience some of the finest storytellers the UK has to offer. It is our vision to connect more widely with storytelling communities outside of the UK, to serve the art-form by sharing our experiences as well as drawing on the resource of others across Europe, whilst still continuing to host a local monthly event.
