Programme is now available!

We’ve been working hard to put together a final version of the programme, listing all the treats in store for you. Some surprises may yet be added, but we have now posted … (drum roll) …

… the Friday, Saturday and Sunday programmes, with all the details about the time and venue for each performance.

We look forward to seeing you in a few  weeks’ time.

More details about performers, and see the gallery!

Catch us on the BBC Wales blog, and the  Society for Storytelling!

As the festival nears, some exciting new performances have been added and we’ve revamped the website. Here are the new developments:

  • Gallery – if a picture is worth a thousand words, we thought you’d like to see what’s on offer with your own two eyes. Click on any picture for more details.
  • Performers – looking for a particular performer? Click on a name to see their page. We now have individual pages for almost all of the performers.
  • Programme – we have updated the list of who is performing on what days. Sincere apologies, but due to unavoidable circumstances, Martin Maudsley and Fiona Barrow will not be able to perform in the festival. We are pleased to note the addition of Christine Cooper as well as some additional fantastic musical performers including Côr Gobaith. Sarah Rundle is offering a very special kamishibae performance (Japanese Visual Storytelling).
  • The Box – several films and performances have been added. We are excited to be able to present the early fairytale films of Lotte Reiniger. Elise Simard and David Rees Davies will be showing brand new films as part of this series.

The exact times for each performance, as well as more details about the films and performances in The Box, will be posted shortly.

Festival booking and programme now available

News flash – More information is now available on the Festival website, as well as the Aberystwyth Arts Centre website.

Back for its second year, to warm the cockles of chill winter hearts, a weekend of stories, songs and sea, music, mist and mischief, puppetry, pictures and prestidigitation, from Wales and the Wide Wide World. This year we celebrate Stories and the Visual Arts, with exhibitions in the Box and Oriel 2, and 3 performances commissioned and created specially for the Festival. So watch the sea, as many familiar faces such as TUUP, Martin Maudsley, and Josian Fauzou return like mermaids from the sea mizzle, and new ones such as Michael Harvey, Sarah Rundle, and Your Man’s Puppets emerge like water kelpies encrusted with seaweed and barnacles.
