Taking place from 22 October to 27 October 2024, the six day festival will return across a number of venues throughout Great Malvern, with days for schools taking place during the week.

Formed by Malvern Hills District Council in partnership with Boffy Arts Events People the festival is a celebration of stories, with professional storytellers, children’s authors, illustrators, puppet companies, musicians, and theatre.
