Discover your innate inner storyteller with this two-day, practitioner-led workshop, aimed at adults with an interest in traditional narratives (folk tale, fairytale, myth and epic) and performance. Packed with exercises, talks, discussions and telling stories – it will give participants an introduction to the core principles of contemporary oral storytelling, the process of visualisation, narrative patterns and structure.

Ben Haggarty’s understanding of orality, metaphor, magic and the dramaturgy of performance storytelling is unsurpassed. World renowned for his physical, often challenging performances, Ben has a repertoire of over 350 folktales, fairytales, epics and myths. He’s a much sought after trainer and director, and is currently Visiting Research Fellow in the Creative Arts at Merton College, Oxford.
