Storyswap Eile

Another chance to share a tale as we meet again to swap stories. All welcome.


Ticket Tip: You do not need to get a ticket for this event. Donations are appreciated. This Storyswap is to be held outside the front of Cotters’ Yard. If the weather is bad the event may be moved indoors, in which case admission will be limited to a first-come-first-serve basis.

Ferry Tip: The morning ferry leaving Baltimore at 10.00am will get you in at approximately 10.45am- giving you some time to relax, look around the island, get a coffee and festival program before the stories start. Please note that ferry seats are limited, book in advance to ensure you get yours!-
