What we do

The Moss Troopers are storytellers, historians and performers who can help bring history to life at your venue for your audiences. We can provide a storyteller (or a whole gang of them!) to entertain audiences at your venue, and can also provide a whole host of displays and workshops illustrating the strange, grimy and grisly side of history from the Stone Age to the Victorians.

All of the Moss Troopers are experienced traditional storytellers, weaving tales of enchantment from around the world. The Moss Troopers tell traditional and original tales from around the world.

We provide costumed storytellers for all sorts of different historical periods, along with themed stories. We can also supply a huge number of different historical displays on daily life, crime and punishment, medicine and magic and the supernatural throughout history, bringing these to life with humour and plenty of audience interaction!

We provide a whole range of school workshops covering different periods of history and featuring exciting hands-on activities and storytelling. We can also provide storytelling performances or literacy workshops for schools on how to write and tell your own stories!

We can provide historical and fantasy themed street theatre or wandering storytellers for any number of events like festivals, local fairs, family fun days, weddings and more. Our raucous characters will interact with your audience, bringing laughter and fun to the event and bringing history to life.

"Lectures" sounds so dry! The Moss Troopers are keen historians and folklorists with access to a wealth of research, and a lively delivery style that can make the weirdest subjects into an entertaining ramble through the backstreets of history.
