Storytale Festival


Festival Member



Storytale is an exciting new book festival founded by Southville residents, Ellie Freeman and author Kate Frost.

Taking place in various venues around the city, it is a week-long festival celebrating the wonderful world of children’s books. Accessible and affordable, there’ll be something for everyone from interactive and sensory storytelling for tots to inspiring talks and workshops for teens.

Chapter 1 of the Storytale Festival begins on Friday 25th October 2019, with prequel events leading up to it. Go on adventures with our storytellers as they bring words and pictures to life, 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.

With dozens of events for all ages taking place in various venues throughout Bristol, there is something for everyone.
