Natural Born Storytellers provide fun, supportive and welcoming spaces for anyone to tell true stories. Our true storytelling nights are one of the warmest and friendliest spoken word events in London and anyone from the audience is encouraged to come and tell stories alongside pre-booked and professional storytellers. If you would like to tell your story at one of our shows, please send us an outline of your story and the theme you think it fits best.
Our live true storytelling events are friendly, open, intimate and honest and the stories moving, life-affirming, shocking, captivating or just plain hilarious. True-life storytelling is different to a comedy night where the expectation is laughter... here laughter comes, but it's a part of a whole breadth of other emotions and reactions to the stories and it makes for rich and fulfilling entertainment whether at a festival, pub or even someone's house. Our true-life storytellers and spoken word artists come from all walks of life and experiences and we believe our storytelling show is one of the warmest and friendliest you'll find anywhere. We create a really supportive environment for our storytellers, our audience are great listeners and people usually stay long after the event ends to socialise and talk to each other and to the storytellers about the stories they've just heard.
We also offer experiential workshops that develop true-life storytelling and spoken word skills through playing games, sharing, performance and feedback. Our storytelling workshops help you find your own storytelling voice, helps you discover that what you have to say is interesting in more ways than you could possibly imagine. We give you the confidence of turning your life experiences into captivating stories and show you techniques that will allow you to connect deeply with your listeners
If you would like to tell a story at any of our events, please send us an email with the outline of your story and the theme you think it fits best. We'll get back to you as quickly as possible :)
