In a nutshell
A beginner's storytelling workshop led by Ben Haggarty, fairytale teller extraordinaire and director of the legendary Crick Crack Club.
This two-day, practitioner-led workshop is aimed at adults with an interest in traditional narratives (folk tales, fairy tales and myths) and in their performance. It will give participants an introduction to the core principles of contemporary oral storytelling, the process of visualisation, and of narrative patterns and structure. You'll discover your innate inner storyteller and begin to appreciate its skills.

He's a much sought after trainer and director, and is Honorary Professor of Storytelling at the Arts University of Berlin.
