National Storytelling Week

January 30 - February 5

National Storytelling Week takes place every year and is a celebration of the power of sharing stories. Stories teach us about the world, they allow us to step into someone else’s shoes and feel empathy, they help us to relax and escape and they can help develop essential literacy skills.

In 2022, nearly 2 in 5 (37.5%) children and young people said they enjoyed listening to audio either very much or quite a lot (find out more in this research report).

To celebrate storytelling week, taking place from 30 January to 5 February 2023, why not encourage people of all ages, genders, and cultures to indulge in stories new and old and participate in this centuries-old form of entertainment.
