Storytelling

"A community-based group of oral storytellers, performance poets and folk singers.

We celebrate and promote the modern practice of an ancient oral tradition, through story, poetry and song - and plenty of drink! Contributions from performers must be from memory or extempore (not read). We regularly feature Bath's best bards, balladeers, storytellers, poets, jokers and raconteurs! The Circle has also featured on TV (in 2006 and 2010).

Contributors to Bath Storytelling Circle gatherings include professional and amateur performers, and the Circle has nurtured much storytelling and performance poetry talent over the past decade, not to mention providing a platform for singers of traditional and modern ballads. We run an open and inclusive event, with free entry.

If you wish to perform, see the evening's Master of Ceremonies for a slot. If you wish to listen, simply sit back with a drink and enjoy the entertainment and the company. To ensure all contributors get a chance to perform, and listeners have plenty of variety, we ask that items take no more than 10 minutes to perform - and we welcome any type of story, poem or song within this guideline."

    Interesting evening; a mixed bag of styles and content, not actually representative of how good an evening it can be.
