Peter Chand

Peter Chand is one of Europe’s finest storyteller’s who has told his fantastic tales all over Britain, and in many other countries such as France, Denmark, Singapore, Canada, and Ireland.  Of Punjabi Indian descent, Peter is constantly in demand for his tales of wit and wisdom, and has worked with audiences of all ages and backgrounds.  He also offers bi lingual storytelling sessions in English and Punjabi.

Peter has a huge repertoire of tales from the subcontinent, and has shared these stories at theatres, schools, colleges, arts centres, nature reserves, festivals, and cultural events all over Britain and further afield.

He also runs practical storytelling workshops for all age groups, and has been involved in many community based storytelling projects. A large part of his work involves passing on storytelling techniques to students, teachers, librarians, diverse community organisations, and budding storytellers. 

Peter is also one of the organisers of the Festival at the Edge International Storytelling Festival, the longest running festival of its kind in England. 

“He’s a bridge between two cultures and two generations.  With his cheeky smile, rich voice and wry humour, I was spellbound”
