Thursday 23 June 7.30-9.30pm
Story Circles are the ‘grassroots’ of the storytelling world, where tellers gather informally to tell to each other, often, but not always, in a pub. They are the ideal place to start if you are interested in learning how to tell, but are also welcoming places to start out as a listener too. Several Story Circles have partnered with Summerlands Storytelling Festival to put on evening performances and workshops. We are also helping to organize ‘club swaps’ where members of one circle visit another, then vice versa. This gives tellers an opportunity to hear new voices and tales from further away, and to get practice telling to a new audience. It is how many tellers begin their move towards professional performance telling and we are delighted to be able to help facilitate these events.
Join us for an informal evening of storytelling in Chagford at Endecott House.
Bring stories to share or just come along to listen. The theme (as ever entirely optional) will be SUN, in honour of the Summer Solstice!
There will be refreshments; there is no entry fee, but donations towards the room hire would be welcome.
Look forward to seeing you there!
This event is hosted by Dartmoor Storytellers, who run a regular storytelling night in Chagford.
Endecott House, High Street, Chagford, Devon TQ13 8AJ
