Storytelling Week

To celebrate National Storytelling Week (Saturday 30th January to Saturday 6th February) we asked for your stories of Northampton.

We were given some fantastic stories from local writers and had our volunteer Paul Enright-King narrate them.

Squirrel, written by Abigail Odede and told by Paul Enright King
Cor the Clever Crow, written by John and told by Paul Enright King

We also were lucky enough to have some storytellers from the Storytelling at the Feast of Fools tell some tales from around the world for us, both family friendly stories and some more ‘adult themed ones’ late at night.

All of these stories can be listened to below, with an understanding that the adult themed stories are not family friendly.

Thank you to all who took part in making this, our first support of Society for Storytelling‘s National story-telling week, such a success!
