The World’s Finest Feast of Traditional Storytelling

The Scottish International Storytelling Festival is one of the most admired storytelling events in the world and the largest of its kind – both from a programming and participation perspective, encompassing a wealth of cultures, traditions and styles – a world of stories within the Festival City.

‘Drift into exotic worlds as talented storytellers from all over the globe regale you with tales of derring-do.’ (Bristol Post)
