This year it is The Society for Story Telling 16th annual National Storytelling Week, taking place from Saturday January 30th to Saturday February 6th.
This is an annual event which aims to raise awareness of this ancient form of entertainment. Over 350 nationwide storytelling events and performances were organised this year for National Storytelling Week in Theatres, Book Shops, Libraries, Schools, Museums, Arts Centres, Storytelling Clubs, Retirement Homes and Pubs!
National Storytelling Week is celebrated by all ages with Folk tales, fairy lore, figments, phantoms, dragons, serpents, & stories of storms at sea.
Everyone has at least one story to tell. It exists in the very air around you. Your story is the one you know best and as it is only the beginning the stories you will tell begin...Once upon a time.
Don't forget too that the four days prior to and the four days after are still part of the festival of storytelling too. They are equally important as they are its fringes or, you may say, its “Coat Tales”!
If you are not going to an organised Storytelling Week event, your children will be sure to enjoy taking part at home. So reach for a book this Storytelling week and make the children happy or children why not read to your parents? We all love a good story.
Once upon a time....
