What we're about

Listening to traditional stories told by professional storytellers, with linked practice and coaching groups and workshops so that you can develop the skills yourself and participate in Open Mike StoryNights and Story Slams. We hold regular events in Exeter, Sidmouth, Topsham and Totnes and other places across Devon.

Exeter Storyclub Night

Online event

Exeter Storyclub is on the first Wednesday of the month (save in exceptional circumstances and sometimes we don't meet in July or August if everyone is away). A supportive gathering to try out new pieces or simply to relax and listen to spoken storytelling at its best.

There is a 15 minute maximum length for stories/music and if anyone goes over that, they will incur the Harmonica of Doom! :) As we love to get everyone’s stories in. Two-parters can be arranged, just let us know! All stories must be from memory - support the oral tradition :) . All welcome.

• What to bring
Yourself, a pair of listening ears and an open imagination.
