Event Details

Storytelling / Public Speaking Workshops at the Art House, Southampton.

The Story and The Telling

Two independent but complimentary one day workshops that can be taken singly or together.

The Story, Saturday 24th March, 11am - 5pm

Concentrating on the material, researching and selecting then developing and preparing what you are going to say.

We will look in to the importance and history of storytelling; investigate the nature, purpose and structure of myth legend and folktale; play with methods for learning and preparing your chosen pieces and approaches to typical and tricky elements of stories.

The Telling, Sunday 25th March 11am - 5pm

Exploring the mechanics of presentation, the physical elements of performing, voice, body, movement, props, and costume. Developing a personal style. Techniques for building characters, active imagination, audience interaction and that all important confidence.

Workshop leader

Cliff Eastabrook has been on stage most of his life. He toured the UK with theatre companies and Europe with rock bands. For over twenty years he has been The Travelling Talesman, a storyteller performing mythology and folklore at festivals and in themed touring shows for adult audiences. He tours 2 shows a year, each involving around 2 hours of new material. 


In The Story and The Telling, he guides you through the process of researching, learning, devising and rehearsing along with tips and tricks from a lifetime of performing.

Both days will include sections on the essentials of voice, memory, and the business of talking to a room full of people, so each day can be taken as a storytelling workshop in its own right, one focusing on what you do before you reach the stage, the other on the skills necessary once you get there.

If you book both workshops the story work done on Saturday can be carried through as the material you refine your telling craft with on Sunday making an intensive and comprehensive 2-day experience.

The processes and methods learned will be transferable to any type of public speaking or orative performance and will be useful not only to budding and improving storytellers but to museum staff, preachers, lawyers, teachers, company managers and charity fundraisers. 

This will be a small group not a large class to ensure a quality learning experience. If you want to know how to stand up in front of people and talk confidently then book your tickets now!

Travel information:-

We are a city centre venue and parking can be in short supply.  If you are driving, please make sure you leave plenty of time to find a space click here for a map of where the nearest parking spaces can be found.

We recommend Kings Park Road car park:
We are about 10 minutes walk from Southampton City Centre train station (head up the hill toward the Guildhall clock tower) and on the route for most city centre buses (the Unilink U1 stops virtually outside.)

 Accessibility info:-

Events are generally suitable for adults, young people and older children - children must be accompanied by an adult at all times, however. Young children are also welcome to come along but be aware some poems and songs may contain adult content (although we try to keep these until after children have left!)

Most events are held on our first floor, accessible by a wide staircase with a sturdy banner. Comfortable seating is provided.  We regret that, due to space and other constraints, we are generally unable to relocate our events to the ground floor for those who require ground level access - so sorry.


Are there ID requirements or an age limit to enter the event?
