National Storytelling Week 29th January - 5th February 2022

National Storytelling Week 2022

Stories belong to all of us, and this week of storytelling events is celebrated all over the country. The Society for Storytelling has promoted the telling of stories, as opposed to just reading stories, for over 25 years. Everyone has a story to tell, and many folk tales and myths are shared stories that belong to everyone.  

National Storytelling Week

Listening to stories is an important way of helping children to learn as it improves both reading and listening skills, and is an ideal opportunity for families to enjoy a shared experience together. The website provides useful fact sheets and online resources, as well as highlighting events organised by the storytelling community.
