The Crick Crack Club    
In 2004 the long running Crick Crack Club became a project of the LCIS. The Club is dedicated to giving the public access to the highest quality storytelling performances for adults, and also for families and children. Its activities include organising tours, festivals and conferences, training and directing performers, advising on the multiple uses of storytelling and sourcing appropriate storytellers for events in theatres, art centres and literature festivals, as well as schools, museums and other site specific contexts. .

Archiving the UK Storytelling Revival    
The LCIS holds a unique, Heritage Lottery Funded, audio archive of performance storytelling by professional performers. These recordings have been collected over the last 25 years by the Crick Crack Club, by promoters of storytelling and individual storytellers. They chart the revival of the art form as a public performance art in the UK.

A Centre for International Storytelling    
The ultimate vision of the LCIS is to establish a venue in London which is dedicated to the programming of performance storytelling - serving not only the general public, including immediate, national and international communities, but also artists, and with an additonal educational remit.
