Spinning Yarns Theatre
Spinning Yarns was launched back in 2016 to re-invigorate the tradition of oral storytelling in South East Essex. Our aim is to promote this ancient art form and dis-spell the misconception that stories are just for children. Stories are gifts and we all have a story to tell. We hope to provide a platform with our events to share and engage in the spoken word through storytelling, poetry and music and championing regional talent in the process.
