Granny Jamieson, born in 1900 into a small, poverty-stricken, coal-mining town outside Glasgow, used her indomitable spirit and overactive imagination to transform her life story into one of daring adventures, romantic entanglements and more than one encounter with the Royal Family. Join Norma as she shares a few incredible stories she heard as a child.   



Do you love a good story?

Whether the stuff of legends, or of everyday experiences, of family history, or present in the tales that teach us how to survive, stories are everywhere.

The well told tale is a universal expression of our humanity because it captures our desire to make the world a more creative and inspirational place.

At Ottawa StoryTellers we’re telling stories all over town.

From our Featured Shows for 2016-2017 to Stories & Tea presenting tales told in an intimate café, to our annual Children’s Storytelling Festival, to our Story Swap, OST celebrates the art of the story.
