Society for Storytelling
15th annual National Storytelling Week
Over the past 22 years The Society For Storytelling has achieved much in its mission for the promotion of the oral tradition of storytelling, the very first way of communicating life experiences and the creative imagination.

2015 marks the 15th year of its Annual National Storytelling Week.

National Storytelling Week takes place in storytelling clubs, theatres, museums, schools, hospitals, spoken word venues, and care homes (where this event has been steadily growing each year!) Where the events take 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. Folk tales, fairy lore, figments, phantoms, dragons, serpents, storms at sea. A good teller will conjure intriguingly.

So as with every year this far we begin at the beginning. There was the storyteller....Once upon a time....

Among the events taking place during National Storytelling Week and its CoatTales The Society for Storytelling Patron Taffy Thomas MBE will be telling stories on the wards of Harefield Hospital on the afternoon of Monday 9th of February. In the evening he will be giving a charity performance in the concert hall to raise funds for the hospital's research programme.
