Welcome, happy traveller! You have found the freshly burnished website of the British Awards for Storytelling Excellence!
While ideas take shape for future award ceremonies, we have made our archive of artists, performances and storytelling projects available for you to explore. This archive showcases storytellers which have been shortlisted for BASE awards before, which we hope give a taste of the fantastic wealth and breadth of storytelling in the UK.
Here are a couple of profiles picked at random every three hours to whet your appetite.
“Once Upon a Time” is a unique interactive performance. Children actively take part in the creation and telling of a new story under the guidance of the Story Tellers.
THERE IS A TWIST! One of the story tellers cannot speak. But he can draw. The story that the children create unfolds before their very eyes, drawn onto a large drawing board.
“When a storyteller tells a tale, standing behind them are the ghosts of all the storytellers who told that story in years gone by.”
