What a year it's been: stories, stories, stories.

Fabled Nights in Newport is an open-hearted space for people who want to learn to craft true tales, traditional stories, tall tales and yarns; heart to heart and without notes. We have folks who come along and strut their stuff, and folks who try out a new story or tell a tale for the first time.
We've mastered technology and beamed in storytellers, refusing to let distance get in the way of a good story.


Jackie and Lily-Anne
We've filmed and timed ourselves.

We've celebrated with storytellers who have practiced with us and  then gone on to tell stories at the The Moth, Peace of Heart, World Storytelling Day, NIDA Nights, Stories by the Fire and Laborastory - just to name a few.

At Fabled Nights there's room for around 10 storytellers and we ask that stories be no longer than 10 minutes, give or take. We ask that stories be said not read.

We reserve 2 - 15 minute places for people who want to try out longer stories. We ask that kind hearts and commonsense prevail: racist and homophobic stories hurt people so please don't bring them to 'Fabled Nights'.
