We are delighted to offer the very first early bird tickets of the Festival to you – we have only a limited number at a knock-down price. These are for our evening sessions: a smorgasbord of different storytelling shows, including longer and enthralling performances of story theatre for adults and older children from two of the UK’s most accomplished storytellers, Nick Hennessy and Sarah Rundle.


Dear Storylovers, we are monitoring the situation closely in these worrying times. We know we may need to postpone the festival to keep all of us safe, and we'll keep you updated.

If we postpone, we will give ticketholders the option of keeping the ticket for the new date or giving you a refund.

We wish you a safe and healthly life in the meantime.
