Festival at the Edge
Festival at the Edge is a celebration of story telling where you can experience tales from around the world that will make you laugh, cry and wonder. FATE is for everyone - for people looking for something new as well as for those already bitten by the story bug.
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. They provide a children's festival that runs throughout the festival weekend, mixing specially booked children's performers with performers from the main festival. 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. There is on-site camping for Weekend, Sat/Sun and All Day Saturday ticket holders. The site is a designated Site of Special Scientific Interest - unfortunately this means that the only fires allowed on site are the storytelling bonfires. They have a craft fair, on-site catering and a CAMRA real-ale bar.
