Please send any news items for this section of the website to enquiries@openthebook.net. Stories about what is happening locally will be very welcome. Open the Book retains the right to edit any contribution.

At the information session there will be an opportunity to experience an Open the Book assembly/act of Collective Worship and to find out why Churches, Headteachers and children value it.

If you are a new group wanting to get started, want to join an existing team, or you are a Storyteller who has not been trained, then this is fun time for you! Initial training will help you begin your journey as a Storyteller with Open the Book and give you some great tips and advice. Book your places with an event near you or contact us to arrange one.

These are events organised by volunteer Local Trainers and/or Storytellers who want their event publicised further afield.

This event is for existing/registered Storytellers, you’ll have an opportunity to refresh your knowledge and hear about our latest news. You’ll also be able to share your ideas with other Storytellers, have your questions answered and have fun!

A dynamic session which will help you learn new skills to help bring your stories to life. An ideal place for registered Storytellers to spend a couple of hours together with other teams to air your ideas, questions, challenges, successes and to share samples of your costumes and props.

In 2019, we are celebrating 20 years of Open the Book with a host of events that we want to let you know about. These may be organised by OtB as well as those organised by Storytellers and volunteer Local Trainers. Send us all the relevant information as listed to add it to our website.
