The Glens Of Antrim Storytelling Festival
1st – 4th October 2020

There’s no stronger connection between people than storytelling…

Listen to fine stories and music in the heart of the Glens of Antrim…

Due to the Covid-19 restrictions this year’s Glens Storytelling Festival organised by Antrim Glens Tourism cannot take place in its normal format as  we would not want to compromise the health and safety of our community and visitors. However members of the newly formed Glens Storytelling and Cultural Heritage Group have got together to create a virtual festival with events on each of the four days; Thursday 1st to Sunday 4th October 2020. This is felt to be essential to hold a space for next year’s festival and to remind our listeners of the beauty of the Glens area area and of its rich heritage of storytelling and music. Our local tellers and musicians have recorded stories many of them set in our stunning landscape.
We hope supporters will enjoy what we have to offer and that it will encourage them to return for the 2021 Glens Storytelling Festival.
