Taffy Thomas returns for another annual weekend dedicated to the art and joy of story telling. Bring stories to share, instruments if you play one, or just come as audience. Importantly, bring your ears; for as Taffy rightly says: “If speaking was more important that listening, we’d have two tongues and one ear”. Your forbears knew that, so forward!

Taffy will be joined by friends, including musicians and tellers. Presentations over the weekend are to be confirmed. So watch this space – details to be added shortly!

Who’s it For?

Tellers of all levels of experience, and those who just want to listen.

“I am new to storytelling. I am now interested in taking up the art, and have already made contact with a storytelling group.” Participant

The Team

Taffy Thomas MBE, England’s first storyteller laureate Taffy is the patron of The Society for Storytelling. Taffy received The English Folk Dance and Song Society Gold Badge award in December 2010. With Taffy’s head bursting with stories, riddles and folklore, professional storyteller Giles Abbot once commented, “when Taffy goes it will be like a library burning down.”

Taffy will be joined by friends.
