Rob Venderbos was a regular Grand Pillow Society audience member until one day on impulse he threw his name into the hat to spontaneously tell a story and got caught by the storytelling bug. He’s been a regular on our carpeted stage ever since, often bringing us stories from Dutch authors.

Esther Kornalijnslijper is a storyteller from Zeist who’s been in hibernation mode as a storyteller. She’s told once before on our carpeted stage and loved our community so much she’s decided to come out of hibernation and share a story with us this month.

Xina Mercken is the initiator of the Grand Pillow Society. If you’ve been to the Pillow Society before, you will know her. She loves inspiring and supporting others to tell stories as much as she loves sharing her own.

Fleur Marin Roorda is someone our regulars definitely know! Fleur Marin’s beautiful voice has graced our carpeted stage many times. With her mix of covers and original songs she wrote herself we are proud of how she’s grown throughout the years.

Wytse de Boer was one of the first people to visit the Little Pillow Society. He came wondering how to find a story and soon felt ready to throw his name in the hat to share a beautiful story during our open mic set. We liked what he did so much we’ve invited him to join our regular line-up, which he will be doing this Grand Pillow Society for the very first time!

And YOU! Come with an open heart and you may find yourself, like Rob, inspired to throw your name in the hat to spontaneously share a 5 minute story. Don’t want to tell a story on stage? No worries, you can join our society by putting on your best socks, kicking off your shoes, settling into pillows and listening to stories and music.
