Tall Tales on Cape Clear Island The Cape Clear Storytelling Festival, which takes place on Cape Clear Island, Ireland’s southernmost inhabited island, has been described as a ‘festival on the edge’. Its appeal as a storytelling festival has been well established over the last 16 years, and it attracts an avid audience of serious storytelling enthusiasts, while at the same time catering for all ages and creeds. This festival, which takes place from September 3 to 5, brings visitors back to a time when the human voice was the most potent form of entertainment, and carefully woven stories around the fire would provide hours of listening pleasure. The varied and extensive programme of events will take place in various parts of Cape Clear Island, with a well-known cast of story-tellers including Rosemary Woods, Charlotte Blake Alston, David Campbell, Pat Speight, and Suse Weisse, who have devised a programme including highlights Storyswap, The Good, the Bad, and the Story, heritage walks, and tales from the Grimms’ collection.
