Loved by Storytellers Around the World​

“Singing in the shower is great fun, but storytelling needs an audience! Joining a group workshop at Confabulation gives you both the audience and the expertise of a team of leaders. You will effortlessly, okay there's some work, go from an anecdote to a compelling story in your own unique voice. With support, encouragement and respectful feedback every step of the way.”

“I had been thinking about storytelling for some time. Three years ago I saw a live performance of Confabulation. I found the performance very interesting and the fact that it was about real life events made them very touching. After that performance I joined a few Confabulation workshops and learnt a great deal about storytelling. Performing for Confabulation has given me a new career opportunity and has encouraged me to become a storyteller myself.”​
