Natural Born Storytellers
Natural Born Storytellers began in Camden Town, London, travelled the UK with sell-out events and has now found it's way to New Zealand! We are very excited to be collaborating with the founders to develop our very own kiwi-Christchurch version. The idea behind Natural Born Storytellers is that everyone has a story to tell, so come and tell it.
Natural Born Storytellers is a fun, supportive and welcoming space for anyone – and that means absolutely anyone, no experience needed – to tell true stories. They may be funny, sad, touching or terrible. People want to hear from you! Each night is themed with prepared storytellers, combined with stories from the audience.
The first year of Natural Born Storytellers was a great success. People of many ages, backgrounds and life experiences have been generously sharing their stories to a growing community. Thank you to all who contributed in various ways to co-create this unique storytelling space. Everyone is looking forward to what stories 2017 will bring – tell your friends!

As usual we will be celebrating the extraordinary in the ordinary – the stories that happened to you, for real.

We always have room for new stories – and new tellers! Don't be shy - we can help coach you if it is your first time. It is a very friendly crowd and a warm and welcoming venue. So if you feel an inkling and you'd like to have a go, get in touch. Be quick as slots fill up fast!
