Welcome to our brand new website!

We are still in the process of transition. Some links are still being tested, and we are in the process of replacing the web developer’s “placeholder” content. If anything doesn’t look or work as you’d expect, please email web@epictales.co.uk

Epic Weeks

Probably the most popular use of storytelling in schools is to improve children’s literacy – either orally and/or with the written word.

But these skills aren’t learnt through imitation alone. Copying words or actions doesn’t breed innovation or independence with language. Such creativity is born from experience – and that’s the area where true oral storytelling, rooted in folklore, has a huge quarry to mine…

With a short course of workshops spread across a week or more, your Epic storyteller will help guide your children on a journey of discovery – not just towards making stories, but towards making good stories – the kind your children will want to share.

In fact, we’re so confident about your children’s capacity for creativity that our final Epic Week course at Key Stage 2 results in a professionally-produced publication – not the kind that is sold only to your children’s parents, but the kind that will be found in bookshops and libraries around the world!

And if that’s not all, Epic Tales is an accredited Arts Award Centre – meaning your children can receive regulated qualifications from Trinity College London from as young as 7!
