Family festival to explore the magic of storytelling

A varied programme of unique young audience workshops and events is on the cards for the Storytelling Southeast Festival which is taking place this week in Dungarvan and Tramore.

Starting on Wednesday and running until Sunday, the festival will include readings, masterclasses, arts and crafts and more.

Thursday and Friday will see Judi Curtin, best-selling children’s author of the Alice and Megan series hosting a free reading at Tramore library in the morning and Dungarvan library in the afternoon.

She will also meet her readers at Eason’s in Dungarvan on the same day at 6pm while local lady Maura Byrne, originally from Abbeyside and the author of the popular Bridget in Werewolf Rehab returns to her hometown library in Dungarvan and has invited children to discuss her book and explore their own stories.

Free readings will take place next Saturday with Sarah Webb whose children’s books have been shortlisted for the Irish Book Awards and the Queen of Teen Award.

Webb’s reading at Dungarvan Library will be followed by award-winning children’s books author Annabel Pitcher.

A day of free family fun events is also on offer on Sunday, Sept 30.

Festival goers can enjoy the magic of storytelling in festival yurts at Walton Park along with creative writing and storytelling workshops.

Storytelling Southeast will also host a series of adult literature, music, poetry and foodies events throughout the five-day festival.
