By word of mouth

A national celebration of oral storytelling will take place on October 30.

Tell-a-Story Day, organised by the Scottish Storytelling Centre, will take place in schools and other venues.

In previous years, events have seen schools exchanging stories with each other, puppet and music shows, parents sharing stories with children, and pupils recording the memories of old people in their community. The centre can provide downloadable resources to plan events. There is information on professional storytellers who might visit a school, as well as stickers, posters and certificates.
