Scottish International Storytelling Festival
15 October - 31 October
The Scottish International Storytelling Festival brings together a large number of Scottish and international storytellers and musicians. It takes place in October each year, as the seasons change with long nights drawing families and friends around the hearth, inspired by the Scottish ceilidh tradition and its sense of togetherness – a community gathering full of tales, anecdotes, music, songs and ballads.
Performance, workshops, talks and children’s events radiate out from Scotland’s capital, as the best of Scotland’s storytelling talent merge with invited global guests, offering a plethora of opportunities to celebrate and discover oral traditions and cultural diversity.
For the 2021 festival programme the SISF presents a hybrid series of live and online events.
