Beckenham Storytelling Circle is a free event. Stories should be told and not read and can be upto 10 minutes long  so come along and tell us a story and improve your storytelling skills. Or you are welcome to come along and listen. What is storytelling?  One of the world’s oldest art forms, storytelling has been at the heart of human expression for as long as we have been able to talk.  From the little, everyday ‘you’ll never guess what happened to me on the bus today’ story to the epic childhood tales that shape our lives, listening to and telling stories is a part of all of us. 

Don't forget our next meeting on Wednesday 28th June @ 8.00..pm. Here at the Goldsmiths, when we may meet in the Garden, if it is hot that evening.  Where you can tell us a story or just listen to the stories and enjoy a glass of wine or a coffee.

 In May on a fine spring evening,  we had but 6 people including one who had not visited us before and what a fine evening of storytelling we had.  Every one  contributed to the proceedings and we were treated to tales of a French romance. a wealthy merchant with a wife who could not speak,,,and still he wasn't satisfied!  The story of Grandfather signing up for the Somme, and some other great stories.

Look out for our next storytelling event during Penge Festival 2017. When we have the brilliant Giles Abbott to entertain us, on Saturday June the 10th  See the website button above "Storytelling in Penge"
