Stealing Thunder is a small storytelling organisation with a big imagination based in the Lake District.

We run ‘Stealing Thunder Storynights‘, a popular monthly storytelling club near Kendal. Aimed at an adult audience, Stealing Thunder features some of the finest performance storytellers from across the Europe. We also put on workshops, outdoor storytelling events and occasionally a festival!

From myths & epics to folktales & wondertales, these stories may be old, but they will shake your world…
