I began the Island Storytellers  in 2006 with  a small core of enthusiastic  local amateur storytellers with the aims being

- To develop oral storytelling on the Isle of Wight
- To encourage participation in storytelling activities in all ages, abilities and cultural groups
- To increase public awareness of the art, practice and value of storytelling and the narrative tradition of the people and cultures of the world

For the past two years, in the summer months, the Island Storytellers have been ‘On Tour’ in that  each month it has travelled to different parts of the Island to take storytelling to a wider audience.  In the winter time we meet in Newport, at the George Inn ( Next to McDonalds)

We meet on the third Monday of the month at 7.30pm. To find out where the next storyclub venue will be visit the Island Storytellers website but to get you started, here are the next few months:

Monday 20th March  The George Inn, 92 St. James Street, Newport (IOW) PO30 1LB

Mad March Tales

Tuesday 17th April  Quay Arts, Newport

Tales from the Riverbank

Monday 15th May The TeaHouse 40 High St, Ventnor PO38

Time for tea?

Other than the monthly storyclub, we invite storytellers over from the mainland, take part in community events and organise storytelling festivals.

 If you would like the group to come and do some storytelling at your event, or to hold our storyclub at your pub/cafe please contact us via the website.
