Hugh Lupton is one of the most prominent figures in the Oral Storytelling Tradition. He co-founded the Company of Storytellers (with Ben Haggarty and Sally Pomme Clayton) in 1985, and for a while ran a branch of The Crick Crack Club in Norfolk. Lupton tells a wide variety of stories, including Epics such as the Iliad and the Odyssey, but also collections of shorter stories such as "I become part of it (tales from the pre-world)" and folktales such as "The Three Snake Leaves (tales from the Grimm Forest)".
