The Village Storytelling Festival was celebration and exploration of the art and application of storytelling past, present and future. Marking the 15th anniversary of The Village Storytelling Centre, this four day festival gave the opportunity to see innovative storytellers from across the UK in exciting contemporary performance and to experience a range of performances from community groups all working with story and art in different ways.

Running alongside is a series of thought provoking symposia which asked how storytelling benefits us a society and indeed, how this ancient tradition remains relevant and contemporary in the modern world. Guests included Jan Blake, The Devil’s Violin, Ruth Kirkpatrick, Cat Gerrard, Tim Ralphs, Katrice Horsely, Michael Williams, Ailie Finlay, Xanthe Gresham-Knight and Tamar Williams, and more.
