About Us - Leicestershire Guild of Storytelling

Go to content
Leicestershire Guild of Storytelling was formed approximately 25 years ago by the late Liza Watts in response to an upsurge of interest in storytelling nationally.

Since then we have promoted oral storytelling by presenting professional storytellers from all parts of the UK and from as far afield as Australia, as well as encouraging new storytellers just starting out.

In 2013 The History Press published our book, Leicestershire & Rutland Folk Tales, one of a series covering stories from counties throughout the UK.

Our latest project, The Story Tree in partnership with Leicester Libraries, is a new storytelling club for Leicester again encouraging new storytellers in a safe environment or for those who just wish to sit back and listen.
