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.
