Lose yourself in a powerful contemporary take on traditional storytelling by Dominic Kelly, an educator, speaker and above all “a master storyteller” BBC Radio. His dynamic delivery, dry wit and complex composition have captivated audiences across the world. In the UK, he’s performed at venues including the Barbican, National Theatre, British Museum and Cheltenham Literature Festival.

Now, Dominic Kelly’s Late Night Tales for Adults is bringing his latest gripping, varied storytelling extravaganza to Larmer Tree Festival. The Hero Light, directed by Michael Harvey, is a wild epic of Irish myth which tells the life of hero Cú Chulainn. Frame drumming and kalimba-playing set off a wide range of telling styles, from comedic and conversational to highly performative and physical. Described by Cambridge Storytellers as “magnificent… amazing artistry,” this promises to be an engrossing show that you won’t forget in a hurry.
