Performance, workshops, talks and children’s events radiate out from Scotland’s capital as the best of Scotland’s storytelling talent merge with invited guests from Spain, Central and South America, offering a plethora of dreamscapes and myths celebrating oral traditions and cultural diversity.
This year’s theme – Festival of Dreams – will explore our ability to dream something different into existence, acknowledging the power of storytelling to lift you out of time and place.
Great stories well told have the ability to evoke indelible images in the mind of the listener, offering visitors and locals a wonderful opportunity to enjoy the extraordinary tales, music and characters that bring both our contemporary and traditional culture to life.
