Spinning Yarns was set up in 2016 out of a desire to share old and new stories from around the world. Working with a collective of storytellers, performance poets, writers and musicians the aim is to excite and entertain with words and to provide a platform for adults to experience and enjoy oral storytelling.
Our regular event 'Word Spun, has now gone virtual, allowing us to bring more wonderful storytellers from across the country and internationally to our audiences. See below for our upcoming events or visit
Spinning Yarns is dedicated to increasing an adult audience for oral storytelling. As such, we organise events in various venues and are always happy to discuss creating new events for new spaces.

"Attended my first Spinning Yarns event last night and it won't be my last. I just loved it! The storytellers were amazing, so expressive, their spoken word draws pictures in your mind and transports you into the story itself."
