IT’S OUR BIRTHDAY!
The Crick Crack Club has been unleashing the rich metaphorical content of international fairytales, epics and myths on your imaginations for 30 YEARS!
We’ve put on well over 2,000 shows. That’s a lot of stories!
We’re mostly run by volunteers. That’s a lot of hard work by lovely people!
DONATE £30 TO RAISE £30,000!
Our aim is to raise £30,000 as our 30th Birthday present. All we’re asking you for is a donation of £30. (Though if you fancy giving us more than £30, then we’ll be super happy! And if you want to give less, we’ll still be super grateful!)
We’re in the middle of making a lovely film that will help convince you that we deserve a gift of this magnitude, but if you don’t need persuading and would like to donate right now – here’s the magic button…
WHAT WILL WE DO WITH THE MONEY!
We’ll spend it of course! Every single penny will be spent on storytellers making more work and performing more shows in more venues for more people. It’ll be £30,000’s worth of MORE!
COME TO OUR PARTY!
Join an All Star Crick Crack Club line-up at Rich Mix on the 29th of November for our 30th Birthday Shindig: featuring Hugh Lupton, Daniel Morden, Jan Blake, TUUP, Sally Pomme Clayton, Nick Hennessey and more! Tickets will be on sale super-soon, so SAVE THE DATE!
WHAT A 30 YEARS IT HAS BEEN!
We co-founded the magnificent Beyond the Border storytelling festival with David Ambrose; we curated the British museum’s 250th birthday party; we created a 5 storey fairytale festival in London’s Bargehouse (twice!); we marched semi naked wild women through the Wellcome Collection; we put an enormous yurt on the South Bank, and we fully intend to keep up such shenanigans for another 30 years!
We started in a pub theatre in Ladbroke Grove way back in 1987, moved to various other pub venues in Camden, Islington and Shoreditch then ran a whopping great festival at the South Bank Centre followed by a 10 year residency there.
Since then we’ve worked with the Barbican (for 10 years!), Cheltenham Literature Festival, Shakespeare’s Globe, Northern Stage, the British Library, the Wellcome Trust, the British Museum, the Unicorn Theatre (for 6 years!), York Theatre Royal, Stephen Joseph Theatre, Warwick Arts Centre, LitFest Lancaster, Aberystwyth Arts Centre, Hay Literature Festival, the Tobacco Factory, St George’s, the Soho Theatre (for 8 years!), Rich Mix (for 7 years!), Art House, Cranborne Earthouse….and many more besides.
