Scottish Storytelling Centre, 43-45 High Street, Royal Mile, Edinburgh, EH1 1SR
The Scottish Storytelling Centre is located on the Royal Mile in Edinburgh’s Old Town, a place with a rich history and many stories of its own.
The centre hosts live storytelling events, theatre, music, exhibitions, festival events, family events, craft fairs and workshops.
A wide range of events are held at the centre throughout the year, showcasing the best of Scottish culture. So, take a look at the centre events coming up over the next few months.
Storytelling Court, Cafe and Shop
The Storytelling Court and Cafe are open to the public, with a child-friendly activity wall and a programme of free exhibitions to enjoy. The cafe serves homemade lunches, drinks and snacks. And there is also a book and gift shop stocking a wide range of storytelling books, CDs and resources.
Incorporated into the centre is the historic John Knox’s House, Netherbow Theatre and George Mackay Brown Library. In addition, it’s the headquarters to the Scottish Storytelling Network. And the main venue for the Scottish Storytelling Festival every October.
For fans of Scottish literature, the centre is in Edinburgh’s ‘Literary Quarter’. So the Scottish Book Trust’s Secret Garden, Writer’s Museum, National and Central libraries and the Scottish Poetry Library are all near by.
