YARN Storytelling Festival Bray
Mermaid Arts Centre presents YARN Storytelling Festival Bray.
Now in its eighth year, YARN brings together our community to share and hear stories.
These storytelling events take place throughout the town in classrooms, community groups, libraries, cafés and bars, in Mermaid itself and at lots of other venues.
This year we are delighted to have the use of the Town Hall chambers for events – a wonderfully atmospheric space guaranteed to add to the spirit of the tales.
The festival programme includes the crème de la crème of Irish storytellers with Liz Weir, Eddie Lenihan, Jack Lynch, Joe Brennan and Brendan Nolan. We are thrilled to also welcome international guests, the legendary Len Cabral and Welsh storytelling master Daniel Morden.
Family storytelling takes place upstairs in the town hall and in Killruddery. Admission is free. Betelnut Café host their annual fun day, Me & The Moon present kids art workshops, Poetry in the Park takes place in the People’s Park, Peter Sheridan performs in Mermaid and there are sessions in libraries, nursing homes and community groups.
