The celebration kicks off on Saturday 28th January-4th February and it will be the 12th year that the organisation has aimed to encourage Britain’s in all areas of the community to take part in creating and enjoying storytelling.
Storytelling is the most ancient of communicative arts and last year around 17,000 got involved. According to the website: “The push is on to make 2012 an even greater achievement to give out to all cultures, tales long untold, tales told and forgotten, ancient and modern tales, and stories as yet unbegotten.”
Reading a story to someone be it your child, or a patient in a hospital, can really empower the listener and feed the imagination from one generation to the next. And what goes well with a good book? A nice pot of hot tea!
Everyone loves a good story whether it is a bedtime, fairy tale, or scary story; so sit back this week, enjoy a lovely cup of tea in one of Ulster weavers china mugs and get lost in the world of literacy.
Why not get involved in the event and gather all the family around on the sofa in the evening this January and read stories to each other from your favourite book? Or incite the imagination by making up your own tale!
Nothing sounds better than pouring a pot of tea, using some of our gorgeous tea and kitchen cosies to keep it warm and embarking on a narrative adventure with the clan.
And after you have racked your brain with jumbling letters and words, gobble down some scrumptious cake to replenish your energy levels. Simply store it overnight in one of our cute cake tins that are perfect for storing cakes, buns and biscuits.
