Beyond the Border

Beyond The Border (Wales International Storytelling Festival) returned to St Donats Castle for a two-day Birthday Barnstormer celebrating 25 years of the very best international performance storytelling on the 09 and 10 June.

Storming The Barn!!

The 25th Birthday Barnstormer was a very special event with performances centred around The Castle, The Blue Garden, the new Moondance Hall, and of course the medieval Tythe Barn.

Taking part in BTB2018 were some of the finest musicians and storytellers from Wales and the World, including Sweden, Finland, Italy, India, Belgium, Norway and Palestine….

Visitors experienced fables and myths, music and magic, love stories and laughter, fun and games for children and fairy tales for grown-ups, all in the beautiful grounds of our castle by the sea.

As part of the Birthday Barnstormer celebrations, we celebrated Visit Wales’ 2018 Year of the Sea. The programme included Stories of The Sea, from Pirate Tales to Viking Myths to stories of Migration across The Mediterranean. Plus stories of ancient times to modern stories. We also had some special guests performing stories from the Mabinogion.
