Developing young potential

Welcome to Contender Charlie.

We aim to use the power of storytelling and mythology to enhance and inspire the creative learning of young people and their teachers. For millennia, cultures have passed wisdom teachings from generation to generation through the power and imagination of story. Our goal is to maintain that tradition. We believe it protects a vital resource, namely the power of language and its essential role in the communication of our thoughts and feelings.


We also specialise in bringing the plays of Shakespeare alive within a school environment; be it with issues relevant to the staffroom or the classroom. Along with our sister company Olivier Mythodrama, we have been using the wisdom of his writing for courses that are receiving outstanding feedback at conferences all over the UK.

We offer a whole range of events tailored to teacher and student development.
