Folklore Festival 24th- 27th September 2020!

Award-winning storytellers and Festival founders, Mostly Ghostly, are delighted to announce the second Festival of Folklore, a free online celebration, connecting with Scotland’s Year of Coasts and Waters. The Festival of Folklore returns this autumn with a brand new online format.

The Festival launched last year in the heart of Upper Nithsdale, and enjoyed a resounding success, welcoming guests from near and far to experience the area’s rich tapestry of history and folklore. For 2020, the Festival of Folklore has evolved to take on a new-look, delivered through a stimulating collection of live online events, videos and craft workshops.

An exciting Festival first sees a collaboration with PAMIS (Promoting A More Inclusive Society) and brings together Multisensory Storyteller, Heather Molloy, and Mostly Ghostly’s Mary Wood, as she reprises her role as Old Mother Mary. The two have adapted The Sanquhar Fairies – a Mostly Ghostly story – to create an interactive and inclusive experience, featuring props and a downloadable resource pack. Participants can access live craft workshops and create props, helping them bring the story to life from their own homes.
