Our Story

In a little room above a pub in Camden Town, people meet every month to share stories. We found that everybody has a story to tell and we are all innately natural born storytellers.

Michael has always had a dream to one day run his own festival and suddenly he hit upon an idea to combine his two favourite passions: true-life storytelling and festivals.

As he shared his vision amongst anyone who would listen a crack-team of festival producers slowly started taking form: Kate, a storyteller from Birmingham, Tim an audience member and social media whizz from London and Jacob, an experienced theatre producer from Melbourne were naturally drawn together through their love of the event, passion for hearing people's stories and search for truth, honesty and vulnerability. 

Why Tellit?

We believe that stories are meant to be shared and if you have a story to tell, you should tell it.

What is Tellit?

Tellit is the UK's first ever festival of true-life storytelling featuring a week of shows, events and workshops across London celebrating 'truth' through various art-forms. 

Tellit will develop into an annual festival that provides a platform for artists to share their own experiences alongside people ‘with stories to tell’ from a wide range of communities.
