Developing young potential

Welcome to Contender Charlie.

We use the power of storytelling and mythology to enhance and inspire the creative learning of young people as well as their teachers and school leaders.

We also specialise in bringing the plays of Shakespeare and other mythological stories to life within a school environment; be it with issues relevant to the classroom or the staffroom. Along with our sister company Olivier Mythodrama we have been using these stories for courses that are receiving outstanding feedback at conferences all over Britain.


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