Beyond the Border exists to create, encourage and promote traditional storytelling for contemporary audiences.

Our vision is to 'bring the world to Wales, and take Wales to the world'. Our biennial international festival of storytelling is the cornerstone of our work, and in addition we run year-round events and projects to build audiences for storytelling and to communicate its power to entertain, transform and inform people’s lives.


We hold a festival every 2 years bringing storytelling artists and musicians from around the world. The festival has an excellent reputation on an international basis. The charity also develops and delivers associated projects between festivals that help promote storytelling and continue to achieve our objectives.
