Upcoming Events

On Friday 6th February, the Matlock Storytelling Cafe is proud to present Michael Harvey with Stories from the Black Mountain.


Venture into the vibrant and liminal world of Breton fairytales, and a landscape filled with encounters with beauties, beasts, strange companions, bizarre marriages, and ruthless atonement. In a charm-your-socks-off performance, Michael Harvey draws on the collections of François-Marie Luzel, to recast and retell these grown up tales of wonder with a disarmingly light touch. These stories come from a place where everyday life and the fantastic collide – somewhere simultaneously earthy, ethereal and real... with a decidedly comedic twist.

Michael has told stories both as a solo performer and with other artists throughout the UK and Europe as well festivals in North and South America. In 2011 he was awarded a Major Creative Wales Award and in 2012 he won a coveted  BASE (British Awards for Storytelling Excellence) Award for Hunting the Giant’s Daughter. We have been trying to book him in Matlock for the last six years!
