Beyond The Border Wales International Storytelling Festival aims to promote excellence in and understanding of the art of performance storytelling, and to celebrate the richness of the world’s oral traditions.

From the outset the festival has sought to raise the status and increase understanding of storytelling as an artform suitable for all ages; to showcase performances by leading practitioners from Wales and the World involved in exploring the retelling of traditional stories for a contemporary audience; and to help develop and provide a platform for an emerging new generation of performance storytellers.

At the heart of this work has been the three-day Beyond The Border festival, already regarded as one of the leading international festivals of storytelling in the UK and among the finest festivals of its kind in Europe.

In addition, BTB actively promotes storytelling on a year-round basis at venues in Cardiff and across Wales.
