Antrim Glens Tourism will continue to awaken and celebrate the real spirit of the Glens of Antrim with its annual festival of storytelling and music.

Festival director and local storyteller Liz Weir says: ‘This is our fourth Festival and we will once again welcome both tourists and local people for a weekend of scary tales and fine music in this area which is so rich in folklore. Listeners can enjoy a unique festival that celebrates the beautiful locality and our story telling tradition.

Over the weekend renowned storytellers Steve Lally, Pat Ryan and Shonaleigh will tell tales of ghosts and witches to send shivers up the spines of listeners of all ages.

Colum Sands, Errol Walsh and Feargal Lynn and local traditional musicians will provide songs and tunes.
