Today's events

Society for Storytelling

The Society for Storytelling was founded in 1993 to support and promote storytelling in England and Wales. They provide a central place to find out about storytelling events, to ask for advice on using storytelling, about workshops and guide aspiring storytellers through the practice.

Their annual Gathering welcomes professional, emerging and aspiring storytellers from across the UK for a weekend of storytelling, workshops, performances and more. The 2017 Gathering is taking place in Plymouth as part of the Plymouth Festival of Words.
