Join us for the first Somewhen Storytelling Festival

Featuring two days and evenings of darkly humorous tales for adults, interactive storytelling for children, shadow puppetry performances, story walks, musical interludes, local interest talks, headline acts, campfire stories, and a barn dance finale.

With three ticketed stages (at least!), as well as a rich programme of free pop-up tales in the Train Story, this is a great opportunity to hear some of the world's greatest tales, and biggest lies, as traditionally told by a wide range of storytellers from the Island and beyond.

Entry to the festival stages is by tickets available in advance from the festival website, or at Havenstreet on the day. If you buy a ticket to one of the festival events this automatically includes entry to Havenstreet station. If you wish to board the steam train, usual operating day fares apply as a separate purchase.

Performances are programmed throughout both days from 10.30 am to 10pm. This festival is being organised and promoted by the Island Storytellers,
