Welcome to the World's Finest Feast of Traditional Storytelling.

The Scottish International Storytelling Festival (SISF) is a 10 day celebration of live storytelling, oral traditions and cultural diversity, bringing together a large number of Scottish and international storytellers and musicians.

It takes place in October each year, as the season's change with long nights drawing families and friends around the hearth, inspired by the Scottish ceilidh tradition and its sense of togetherness - a community gathering full of tales, anecdotes, music, songs and ballads.

The Festival takes place in and around Edinburgh. The main venue is the Netherbow Theatre at the Storytelling Centre on the Royal Mile, the heart of Edinburgh's Old Town. Partner venues include the National Museum of Scotland, the Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh, the National Library of Scotland and many other cultural organisations in Edinburgh, Glasgow and Scotland.
