Welcome to the World Storytelling Cafe, a truly international project which was born in Marrakech, Morocco where we are currently building a venue and in February 2022 we will be hosting the first Marrakech International Storytelling Festival.

We are proud to be showcasing the talents of more than two hundred leading tellers from six continents.

On this page (below) you can watch todays performances and see the forward schedule of events we have planned.   If you have Zoom you can participate “in-the-room” with one click. You are also welcome to visit our archive of performances which features hundreds of hours of stories.

We welcome approaches from professional storytellers interested in telling on the site, especially tellers from traditions and nations not yet represented here. Please don’t hesitate to contact us.  We “pass the hat” in time honored fashion allowing those who can afford to do so to support our tellers financially.

You’ve heard enough from the festival organisers, without further ado….. The Show Must Go On!
