OUR STORY

Spinning Yarns began its 'Once Upon a Time' back in 2016 to bring the magic of storytelling to adult audience's across South East Essex and beyond.

Established and run by Hannah Brailsford, our ethos is simple; we bring stories to life, whether a well woven classic or a new tale inspired by classic themes, through a blend of performance storytelling, spoken word and music.

A wonderful mix of music, poetry & stories. 

Quirky, surprising, they bring new & different talent to their evenings.

I've never spent a moment at their evenings with my mind wandering. 

Sometimes, I forget to breathe.

I hadn't been to an event like this before so wasn't sure what to expect.

I thoroughly enjoyed the evening and I will be back for more!
