Who’s it For?

Tellers of all levels of experience, and those who just want to listen; after all, “if speaking were more important than listening, we’d have two tongues and one ear.”

“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.”

We’ll be announcing the rest of the team in early 2019.
