"Eye to eye, mind to mind, heart to heart" 

For too many years, Storytelling has been misunderstood as stuffy and dull, the image of someone sitting in a musty room reading from old books to a bored audience always seems to spring to mind. Yet, the tradition of Oral Storytelling is so much more (for one we don’t read, its all from our heads). It’s a craft that needs to be seen and heard to fully appreciate its strength and Joy.​

Storytelling has allowed me to travel to some truly amazing and interesting places, from libraries, schools, community centers, public houses, theaters, festival halls, on the streets as a busker and in far off lands in such places as the ancient Redwood Forests of California. These experiences have continued to drive my passion for Storytelling, every adventure, every journey, every encounter is just new fuel for the fire.

  "This is why I love Storytelling, life creates new stories to tell"

Calum Lykan Storytelling Tours

It has helped me build a broad repertoire of Tales, but if I’m honest the Scottish folk tales alongside the Norse Myths that are some of my favorite to tell. No matter where I am in the world it’s these stories that connect me to my homeland and my heritage.​​

With this is mind I have created a series of Storytelling performance options.

It’s not exhaustible and all the performances can be tailored to suit any environment or age range. If you don’t see what you are looking for, remember this is only a selection of what I can offer.
