National Storytelling Week – 27 Jan to 3 Feb 2018

National Storytelling Week takes place in storytelling cafes, clubs, pubs, theatres, museums, schools, hospitals, spoken word venues and even care homes. Where ever the event takes place, the web of stories will be spun with sufficient magic between the breathe of the teller and the ear of the listener.

National Storytelling Week is celebrated by all ages enjoying folk tales, fairy lore, figments, phantoms, dragons, serpents, storms at sea. A good teller will conjure intriguingly.

Remember everyone has at least one story to tell. It exists in the very air around you. Your story is the one you know best. The stories you will tell might begin with… once upon a time, or not in my time, or not in your time but in someone’s time…


National Storytelling Week 2018 will run from midnight on the morning of Saturday 27th January to midnight on Saturday 3rd FebruaryHOWEVER, don’t forget that the four days prior to and the four days after are still part of the festival of storytelling too. They are equally important as they are its fringes or Coat Tales

So if you have a story to tell, tell it – and if you don’t ask someone to tell you theirs!
