Storytelling Clubs

One of the great features about storytelling in the UK is the variety of clubs.  They vary from story rounds where anyone can come to tell a short story (or some come just to listen), to clubs where you listen one storyteller for the whole evening as they tell an epic tale.  The hardest part is often finding your nearest club and finding out what is on.  Below is a list of clubs that the Society knows about.  If you know of another club, please let us know.

Clubs do sometimes change their details, so if you are travelling some distance to a club it is worthwhile checking the events list, or contacting the club organisers to double check that it is meeting.

Note: this list is not yet complete; we know of many more clubs but are waiting for them to confirm their details before making their listing live.
