About Festival at the Edge

A weekend of fantastic storytelling, tall tales, terrific tellers, music and more ... surrounded by breathtaking views of the Shropshire countryside

Festival at the Edge is an annual international festival that has been bringing the best of storytelling to audiences for eighteen years. 

"by word the mind is winged" Aristophanes

From Friday to Sunday, there is always a choice of something on offer - the best international storytellers in performance, music, comedy and related arts.  There are practical workshops, story rounds and informal music sessions for you to join in.  At night the bonfire sessions continue until late (or dawn!).  Since 1999, the Festival has commissioned major new storytelling performances to premiere at the festival each year.

As a family-friendly event we provide a children's festival that runs throughout the festival weekend, mixing specially booked children's performers with performers from the main festival.

We are working towards making the festival as accessible as possible to people with disabilities - both as performers and audience.  Please contact us for more information or to let us know if you have any special concerns or requirements.

The festival always takes place over the third full weekend in July (Fri - Sun) on a stunning greenfield site on Wenlock Edge, just outside the historic town of Much Wenlock, Shropshire.  The programme begins on Friday evening at 7pm and closes at 5pm Sunday afternoon.
