Oral storytelling is one of the most ancient artforms, and continues to this day as a vibrant part of culture throughout the world.  The Society for Storytelling was founded in 1993 to support and promote storytelling in England and Wales.  We provide a central place to find out about storytelling events, to ask for advice on using storytelling, and to find storytellers.
