Clive Hopwood

"All of my Stories are True"
FRIDAY 28 August 2015

£7 admission

Clive Hopwood performs, "All my stories are true, (but some are truer than others).

Clive Hopwood returns to Stubbing Wharf, with a sparkling and varied collection of gem like tales.

Amongst his many pioneering projects, Clive developed the brilliant Storybook Dad/Mum project by supporting imprisoned parents in prisons across the country.

He was the subject of the Radio 4 documentary, 'The Goodnight Tales' and winner of the Lord Longford Prize in 2004 and the British Awards for Storytelling Excellence Community Project 2012


The hunger for narrative is a basic human instinct. Stories help us make sense of the world and give structure and order to our everyday lives.  They tell us what is important, what is not and give us a way to connect people's individual experiences to those of others. They help us identify with universal truths. Stories are a way we put a human face on the world, which is something we have always needed and valued. Some of our most profound decisions are made emotionally, not rationally. Stories tap into emotions better than anything else.
