Last Monday I had the opportunity to visit the Bath Storytelling Circle, hosted at The Raven. We were able to relax with a drink and just listen to the most classic form of entertainment. One of my former professors used to say that stories are how we as humans connect to each other, so it was wonderful to see people practice this art. People would take turns telling stories or singing songs, ranging from the hilarious to the emotional. Hearing these tales in person was amazing, as you not only get to hear the tone and intonation of the speaker, but also see all of the hand gestures and physical embellishments. Have you really experienced storytelling if you haven’t seen an older British woman reenact the epic journey to use the toilet in a tiny pub? Nothing compares.
