The Worth Valley Storytelling Guild was formed in 2012 by attendees of the Haworth Open Storytelling Circle, with the intention of furthering the original intent behind the Open Storytelling Circle.

The purpose of the association is to encourage and facilitate the art of storytelling in all its forms by, though not limited to

a) advancing the education of the art, practice and value of oral storytelling

b) supporting the use of storytelling as a method of education in its own right

c) engaging the community through the performance of oral narrative traditions, storytelling and stories

d) promoting awareness of and widening access to the oral traditions of all the peoples and cultures of the world by working with existing community groups
