Fine stories and music set to be heard across the Glens of Antrim

The Glens Storytelling Festival is back from 20th – 23rd October with a wide range of live events, following two years of pre-recorded and online sessions.

This festival which is now in its 10th year celebrates the beauty of The Glens area and of its rich heritage of storytelling and music.

Public events will take place at venues from Ballycastle to Islandmagee, from Rathlin Island to The Sheddings.

There will be story walks and sessions aimed at all the family. In addition a programme of outreach activities is being organised in libraries, schools and residential homes.

Having developed a wide international audience during the pandemic, organisers are scheduling one online storyswap session so our friends around the world can still join us to listen in.​

Local tellers and musicians will be joined by special guests from England, America and from across the island of Ireland. 

This year’s festival is being organised by the Armstrong Storytelling Trust, with The Glens Storytelling and Cultural Heritage Group, as well as partnering with Ballycastle Museum, the Glens Red Squirrel Group, the Lurig Drama Group, Libraries NI. and the Causeway Coast and Glens Heritage Trust and Poetry Ireland.
