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, about Workshops to help you find your individual voice as a new storyteller and this is also the place to find the storytellers who already have.
