"The best way to find yourself is to lose yourself in the service of others."
Mahatma Gandhi


Somerset Storyfest brings an opportunity for children and adults to see literature and books "come to life", meeting authors and illustrators and attending presentations given by these inspiring and talented people. We invite you to share in the spirit of the Festival as a volunteer.

This is a wonderful opportunity to meet and mix with others, while contributing to the success of the Festival. Your support of Storyfest is greatly appreciated.
