COVID-19 Announcement

It is with a heavy heart we announce that Storytale Festival 2020 has been cancelled. It wasn’t an easy decision but we felt that it was the best thing to do in these uncertain times – following government guidance in response to the COVID-19 pandemic for keeping everyone safe.

We were bowled over by the quality of applications and had started working on scheduling the events, which we would have loved to share with all the wonderful families who supported our first festival.

We will continue to be present on social media, active on our blog and showcase the wonderful authors, illustrators, storytellers, publishers, libraries and book shops who have been integral to the festival.

And we will be back, bigger and better in 2021.

Stay safe and well everyone. Xx

What's on?

Follow our trail of exciting events, including storytelling, talks, and workshops for children of all ages.

Go on adventures with our storytellers as they bring words and pictures to life for you in fun and interactive events at venues across Bristol. And journey through the pages with Bristol’s talented children’s book authors and illustrators as they give you exclusive access to the tales behind their books.

Chapter 2 of the Storytale Festival will start in October 2020. We’re hard at work behind the scenes arranging more fantastic events for tots and teens, so watch this space…
