• Storyfest SPRINGS into action

    Somerset Storyfest kicked off its shackles of Winter on Saturday 2nd March at the Taunton Library with three FREE hours of Storytelling and Art.

    Storyteller Stu Packer led the way with two lively and enjoyable sessions of high energy, participative storytelling wooing the audience with WOW words and instilling invigorating images into the minds of his listeners. Xeena Cooper then led an Art session in the afternoon where participants were invited to join in with Art Making, whilst creating their own story.

    This was a first for SSF at Taunton Library and was well attended by those who made the leap towards this new home of live storytelling...

  • What is Somerset Storyfest?

    Somerset a county rich in folklore, culture, the arts and tradition now has its own storytelling festival

    We have googled the internet annals of time and found no previous festival of its kind so this could be the county's first, if not please get in touch and tell us what we've been missing

    Somerset Storyfest 2012 has drawn on its own array of professional and experienced storytellers from the rivers of Langport to the hills in the west, from the borderlands and mining towns of the north to the flatlands around Glastonbury

    As this is our first year we have decided to start small, working in and around the county's capital of Taunton with existing links. In subsequent years we are hoping to keep a base in Taunton, whilst branching out to other areas of the county. Get in touch if your area is interested

    Thanks go to The Brewhouse, Halsway Manor and The Museum of Somerset for their total support, Take Art, the Society for Storytelling and Somerset County Council for making it possible and encouragement from the Bristol and Abergavenny Storytelling Festivals

    We hope there will be something suitable for everyone with school and college projects, exhibitions and competitions, performances, activities and events for children and adults, as well as visits to the children's hospital and an elderly residential home
