About

Chris LoweChris is an accomplished storyteller and singer guaranteed to entertain any audience. He has been telling stories professionally for over 20 years and during such time has proudly held the title of Biggest Liar in Shropshire.

Chris' storytelling career started at junior school, where he began telling stories to pupils and teachers. He was an instant success! His West Midlands or 'Brummie' background bring colour and life to his tales, which originate from all over the globe.

Audiences have included schools, folk festivals, street entertainment, after-dinner speaking, storytelling festivals, adults with learning difficulties, National Trust events, residential homes and excluded/expelled pupils. He has also performed at the Hay Literary Festival where he is famous for his story taxi (just ask!).

Bromyard Festival

His main criteria is simple; the story must entertain and interest an audience (educate and inspire are often in there too). Chris is well known for his scary stories and his ability to tailor a story to suit his audience and surroundings. Chris uses an active style of telling and loves to involve members of his audience in the action.

Performances can also be sprinkled with music hall ditties and he claims to knowing all the verses to songs such as “I’m forever blowing bubbles” and “It’s a long way to Tipperary”.

Malcolm Speake or AKA as Speake and Lowe

 

Speake and Lower

Malcolm Speake and Chris Lowe have been telling tales at folk festivals for well over a decade. They both come from “Peaky Blinder Country” in Birmingham (See famous TV series) and did their fair share of telling fibs to parents and teachers alike. Hence they were sometimes known as Porkie Blinders in the Bordesley area of Birmingham. You can sit and listen to their etymological perambulations or pick up a few of their tricks at a workshop session. Whichever you decide to do you will not be disappointed as you listen to two erstwhile Biggest Liars in Shropshire and Chris Lowe winner of the Birmingham Story Telling Festival Prize.

Mr Fox

Not suitable for those of a delicate disposition. Intended for an adult audience - no one was actually harmed during the telling of this story. Keep sound high because I tell to audiences not microphones - sorry about that!

Warwick Literature Festival

At Warwick Literature Festival Various Artistes were invited to give their interpretations of stories created for a MA course in Creative Writing. Here Chris does his version of a story written by Dimitris Melicertes. It is meant for adult audience and not delicate ears. As usual Chris cannot resist introducing some slightly dark humour.
