The Oxford Storytelling Festival

The Oxford Storytelling Festival

A BOUTIQUE, INTIMATE FESTIVAL WEAVING MAGIC WITH STORIES, SPOKEN WORD, POETRY AND SONG. A TRUE FEAST FOR THE SENSES.

We are creating a beautiful space where a community of people can come together and connect to each other and the stories of our lands. The theme of this year's Oxford Storytelling Festival is 'home and belonging'.

We are very excited to be able to present some of the UK's best storytellers alongside some exciting musicians and entertainers.

Waterperry Gardens has been the venue for the well known Art in Action festival for the past 40 years.  

2016 saw the last ever Art in Action. From the old oak tree of this magnificent arts festival, a new generation of smaller festivals held here has sprouted.

Oxford Storytelling Festival marks the dawn of a new era for this beautiful venue.

SO WELCOME TO OUR FESTIVAL 2018!
