Mike Payton has been telling tall tales all his life, and decided to turn this into a career in 2008. He was Lancastrian born, but is now based in Nottingham, drawing his tales from Britain’s rich heritage and also from the four corners of the earth. His delivery is warm and engaging, and he has a penchant for the strange and unexplainable. He has performed in museums, galleries, festivals and schools across Europe and the UK.
“Mike’s passion, enthusiasm and incredible talent kept hundreds mesmerised while making the day an unforgettable experience for everybody.” Jimena Gorraez-Belmar, Events curator, The Wellcome Trust
