Storytale Festival 2019

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 Saturday 26th 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.


Storytale Festival runs over October half term from 26/10/19 – 03/11/19. The full programme of events and more information can be found at
