Liz Weir 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.

Featured Profiles

Here are a couple of profiles picked at random every three hours to whet your appetite.

  • Tim Porteus – Fathers’ Christmas Tree

    Tim offers free “Storydad” sessions to fathers wanting to develop their story skills, and from this has come the “Father’s Christmas Tree” in the Scottish Storytelling Centre, decorated with yellow ribbons, so dads who miss their children can express their love for their child.
