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.
There are few in the land with the storytelling and musical skills, and also the knowledge of history, legend and folk tale, to create and perform such a demanding work. Mike O’Connor and Barbara Griggs have created a gem, a masterpiece of language and melody. It can only enhance their already considerable stature.
Daniel Morden has been a professional storyteller since 1989, and has toured widely with The Devil’s Violin Company, integrating music with story.
