ERY few peo­ple don’t love a good story, whether it’s the ones we were told as kids or those we tell to our own lit­tle ‘uns. It’s not sur­pris­ing then that, over the past 24 years, The So­ci­ety for Sto­ry­telling has suc­ceeded in its mis­sion to get us all telling tales – and lis­ten­ing to them – and, be­tween Jan­uary 27 and Fe­bru­ary 3, it is aim­ing to get us all sit­ting com­fort­ably to do it again.

This year marks the 18th out­ing for Na­tional Sto­ry­telling Week and there is a host of events and sto­ry­telling ses­sions for fam­i­lies to en­joy.

Na­tional Sto­ry­telling Week takes place in all sorts of venues from sto­ry­telling clubs to the­atres, mu­se­ums, schools, hos­pi­tals and more – West­min­ster Abbey was one of the thou­sands of places which took part last year.

Wher­ever the events take place, the web of sto­ries will be spun with suf­fi­cient magic, says the SFS, be­tween the breath of the teller and the ear of the lis­tener.

There will be lots of ex­cit­ing events tak­ing place in the run up to the big week it­self, too, so don’t for­get to check them out.
