Pete Keal - Storyteller

"... painting pictures with words ..." 

STORYTELLING is as old as language itself. Today, through sharing our experiences, thoughts and dreams, the spoken word remains integral to the richness of our lives. Telling stories kindles the mind's creativity as the tales entertain us, feed us, teach us and heal us.

          PETE KEAL has been working as a storyteller since 1991. He has a repertoire of Folk Tales, Legends, Trickster Tales, Myths, Wonder Tales and Lies that embraces the unusual, the magical, the humorous, the challenging and sometimes the thoroughly nasty ... stories from many countries and cultures ... stories with heroines … stories to absorb the listener … stories to touch the heart. 

Pete brings a vibrant energy to his telling which is lively and dynamic. He has told stories to people aged from 3 to 93 in schools, libraries, theatres (including the Crucible in Sheffield), museums (The Science Museum, London, among them), hospitals, festivals, tree dressings, story walks and environmental events, pubs, and playschemes.
