International Storytelling Festival 

 Everyone loves a good tale.....

Celebrating its 26th year, the oldest storytelling festival in England has relocated to the stunning setting of Dearnford Lake in Whitchurh surrounded by the beautiful countryside of North Shropshire.

Once again there is a feast of stories on offer from UK and international storytellers, plus music, dance, creative workshops, and CAMRA real ale - adding up to a packed and varied weekend programme.

This weekend event is unique in the festival calendar, bringing together the finest professional performers from Britain and the world over. There are stories for all tastes and ages; whether you are into epic tales, ghost stories, local legends, or tales of wit and wisdom
from around the world.

As well as large marquee venues the festival offers more intimate settings such as Story Rounds, where all are invited to share a tale or two over the weekend, or you might like to try one of our storytelling or music workshops.

There is also a dedicated and packed children's programme that includes stories, craft activities, circus skills, and much, much more, entertaining younger festival goers all weekend.

Audiences will get the chance to hear some magical and moving stories from the best of British storytellers such as Ruth Kirkpatrick, Michael Harvey, Douglas Mackay, Xanthe Gresham and Nick Hennessey.
Another feast of live music this year includes, amongst others, The Coven, Vicki Swan & Jonny Dyer, Anna Shannon, Ninebarrow, The Jim Causley Trio and Tim Dalling.

With onsite camping, a variety of caterers and crafts traders Festival at the Edge provides a memorable weekend in spectacular surroundings where your imagination is guaranteed to soar...

"Not for a long time have I been made to think so deeply, been so entertained or just laughed so much"

"Finally landed back in Devon after a splendiferous weekend in the land of stories, song, friendliness and fun. All well worth the long drive!"
