Surrey Storytellers is a group that promotes the art of storytelling for Adults, Young People and Children throughout the County of Surrey, in England.
Storytelling is one of the oldest forms of entertainment in the world and is also the way societies hand down their histories and values from one generation to the next. It is currently enjoying a revival thanks to a renewed interest in the folk arts which also include music, song and dance. There are lots of storytelling circles and events run across the UK, at which everyone is welcome – either to listen or tell a story of their own.
This month we have a double bill in our second half.
First, Anna Stickney will be telling the Piper at the Gates of Dawn, a tale from The Wind in the Willows in which Rat and Mole go searching for the lost baby otter on a mysterious midsummer night. Then James Canvin will weave stories of the old Norse gods, taking us on a journey from the beginning of time to a most unusual wedding.
