Stories at Helmcken House

Before there were clay tablets, papyrus, parchment, books, emails or texts, there were stories told by heart. Stories were carried from person to person informing, entertaining, inspiring and creating community through this sharing. The power of spoken word is profound.

Come and enjoy stories at Helmcken House every 3rd Saturday of the month. Experienced tellers will delight audiences of all ages with folktales, myths, legends and personal stories from around the world. The Royal BC Museum, the Victoria Storytellers’ Guild, and talented Victoria artists of spoken word are supporters of these events.
