Warm regards,

It is hard to imagine a more stunning backdrop for storytelling than a castle where, inside and outside, by day or by nightfall, you can enjoy a romantic, scary, exciting or amusing story (and many more too). At this International Storytelling Festival, an international group of 35 professional storytellers tell their own stories, those written by other authors or stories originating from folk traditions. There will be storytellers from Flanders, the Netherlands, Germany, the UK, Spain, Italy, Portugal, Canada and Ivory Coast. All genres will be included: travel tales and scary stories, fairytales, life stories, fables, stories by great authores. The week-long programme is aimed at young people in an educational context, higher education and adult education language departments. At the weekend there is a multilingual programme for adults.
