Join in and Tell a Story on the Day!

Join in with family-friendly storytelling events for all ages and be part of the Scottish International Storytelling Festival!


Tell-a-Story Day is the national celebration of oral storytelling, the perfect opportunity to get together with your friends, family or community and rediscover the pleasure of telling and listening to stories. Tell your own tales and encourage others to share local myths and legends, enchanting fairy tales, scary Halloween stories or treasured family legends... it's up to you!

Organising a TASD event is easy, entirely free and our team is always at hand to help with your planning. On our website you will find tips and advice from our professional storytellers, free resources and tales that you can download, learn and tell on the day. So what are you waiting for? Start planning your TASD now! Register your event on our website and you will get free posters and stickers, as well as a 30% discount on Tales on the Tongue, the Scottish Storytelling Centre's famous collection of traditional tales for all ages ~

Register your event by Monday 26th September to make sure our free resources reach you in time. This year we have prepared some exciting new resources focusing on three festival themes: Sea, Shore, and the Stories in between, Tales of Olympic Proportions and Halloween. We hope that these resources will inspire you and help you with your planning.

Scotland’s Islands - the events, exhibitions and activities happening all year round.

We list every event we hear of, large and small, taking place on the islands of Scotland or taking place elsewhere and relating to Scotland's Islands. They provide a unique opportunity to savour the diversity and excitement of island life. Check our our facebook page for general updates too -  

There has never been a better time for you to visit Scotland's Islands, to enjoy the breathtaking scenery and unspoilt beaches, to get close to dramatic wild-life, learn about our heritage, participate in a great range of activities, and enjoy our music, food and drink.

All this on some of our 99 inhabited islands large and small (and many more uninhabited) accessible by sea and air in six regions: Argyll & Bute, Highland, North Ayrshire, Orkney, Outer Hebrides and Shetland.
