Telling Tales at The British Library

A free storytelling workshop at The British Library this May!

Join storyteller Olivia Armstrong for a storytelling adventure!

Listen to traditional Norwegian folktales of fantastic foxes, greedy giants, wonderful witches and terrible trolls!

Roald Dahl’s mother told similar tales to him as a boy, which may have inspired his magical stories. Find out how they could inspire you too by discovering new ways of story-making.

Then become a storyteller yourself, and discover how to make a word salad for a giant story! Perform your story and fill the British Library with your wonderful words.

Be a word wizard and join in the fun!

Drop in places are limited to 40 people per workshop and allocated on a first come, first served basis. This event takes place at 11:30 and 14.00.
