The East Anglian Fabulation are a group of storytellers and supporters from four East Anglian counties, all with a fine history of putting on stimulating, popular and successful storytelling events, who share a common wish to celebrate what is unique about storytelling in East Anglia.
We celebrate everything that is fun, intriguing, fascinating and entertaining in the tradition of East Anglian storytelling. We have held our last five festivals in locations in Suffolk and Norfolk, and in 2021, we are delighted to hold the festival at Stock Street Farm Barn, near Coggeshall in Essex, a site rich in history that provides a superb backdrop for our storytellers. The Festival is non-profit making and is organised entirely by volunteers.
Saturday Daytime and Sunday Morning Free for everyone!
Animal crackers tales for children, craft workshops* alternative morris dancers, family stories to tease and enthrall, tell your own story, story walks, stories of war, blood, poison, skulls, revenge, sex, mosaics and town planning (?!). Kids will marvel, laugh and join in! Nursery rhymes as you have never heard them, poetry, joke telling, and a Grande Finale... Suitable for children aged 0-99!
*Craft workshops may charge a small fee to cover materials.
Friday and Saturday Evenings - Ticketed
Evenings will thrill adults! (age guide below) Storytelling rivals the best epic you've ever seen, the funniest sitcom, the scariest film, all told live from the hearts, minds and mouths of our performers. Your heart in your mouth, laughs from your belly, fear from your core. It's standup, theatre, music, poetry, rap, mime, acting - all rolled up together. Perfect for that special night out with friends and family.
We will be welcoming our headline tellers, Nick Hennessey and Sarah Rundle, together with a feast of local storytellers, and a host of other great wordsmiths, musicians and events.
Age guide: Friday Evening 12+; Saturday Evening 16+
