The annual Storytelling Festival returns with ten days of fascinating tales told by masters of the art. The event will see a number of shows return from last year including Story Jam and Storytellers' Club. The line up will also include comedy hero Will Hodgson, the man with the anecdotes Martin Dockery and John Luke Roberts, who brings with him his one man tale of a sock puppet. The finale of the festival will be The Voices in Your Head, a dark-hearted storytelling show that features Russel Tovey, Kerry Howard and Thom Tuck.

About Leicester Square Theatre

In 2002 this compact, 350 seater opened with Taboo, Boy George's musical trawl through Thatcher's 80s and his own turbulent career, a production that ran for well over a year. The Leicester Square Theatre seems to have succeeded in carving out a niche for itself amongst the many grand Edwardian playhouses and cavernous auditoriums of London's Theatreland.
