Hong Kong Stories is a group dedicated to the art of storytelling in Hong Kong. We focus on telling true, first person stories live, on stage, without notes and in front of an audience. We run weekly workshops and produce over 12 live shows per year (when pandemics do not interfere).
Hong Kong Stories is a volunteer led and run organisation and a registered society. We have a podcast with listenership of over 250,000, a Facebook page, a Facebook Group, a Twitter feed and an Instagram page. They all say pretty much the same thing, we love stories and we would love to hear yours! If you have further questions please email.
Everyone has a story to tell.

The origins and ethos of HKS
Why we are so darn good and what you can do about it
We have two ways you can be involved, the first is to be a storyteller, the second is to be an audience member! If you want to be an audience member, you can find the monthly show dates here and ticketing for the shows can be found on the link in the News section above.
Yeah, we are pretty awesome. It is true. But the thing is - you could be awesome too. Just join us, we promise you won't have to sign up to any strange doctrines or do physical training, but you may have to learn how to be in front of the microphone without any of those pesky notes.
Hong Kong Stories is a community-focused organisation run by people who like getting involved and telling great stories. We hold weekly free workshops and monthly live shows to bring fresh, original storytelling to Hong Kong. We mostly tell stories in English, though we don't require our storytellers to be perfect. Over the years we have built a really fantastic community of people with diverse and different backgrounds.
A note to audience members - Storytelling isn't just for kids, in fact, our storytellers tell true stories about their real lives and it isn't always pretty - or appropriate for children. That is why our shows have a 16+ advisory rating. If you would like to hear what it sounds like before you venture out - try listening to the podcast!
We've got a top notch group! Storytellers who appear 2 or more time on stage are featured in our gallery!
