Storytelling Festival 2012!

30th November, 1-2 December 2012

The programme listing performers and events for each day is now available!

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.

Festival ticket £25, day tickets available. Booking details are available on the Aberystwyth Arts Centre website.


Welcome to the very first Aberystwyth Storytelling Festival!

Storytelling, whether tales told simply around an open fire beneath a crescent moon, or performed in theatres under the glare of arc lights , or stories made up as children drift into dreamworld, is as important in our lives as it has ever been. Stories connect us to our roots, our communities and in an age of uncertainty allow us to give thought to our futures. The Magical Illuminarium and Aberystwyth Arts Centre are bringing together storytellers from around the world for a weekend of tales to tickle the toes and stories to seduce the senses, for the very first storytelling festival in this salty little seaside town.

See the Programme and Performers tabs for detailed information. Booking info has also been posted. Note that the contact email in the website and poster below has been updated.
