Beyond The Border Online Festival
26 June – 10 July 2021

Go through the door to book your tickets...

We know many of our audiences and artists would love to be with us at Beyond the Border at our new festival home of Dinefwr in Llandeilo, but because we have such limited capacity, because things are so uncertain and travel restrictions, we know many of us can’t be together in person this year.

We have fallen in love with our new festival home and we want to do everything we can to take you there and let you experience the very best in storytelling from Wales, the UK and the world.

So by the magic of Wi-Fi we want to take you on a wondrous journey from wherever you are in the world through Wales and along that majestic driveway at Dinefwr, into our festival field and through our Virtual Tent doors.

We will take you on a storytelling adventure through technology. Experience the intimacy of being close to a storyteller, immersing yourself in a story, in a unique and special way you wouldn’t have thought possible 12 months ago.

During lockdown we have been working hard exploring how to deliver digitally the very best of storytelling.

How do we take you on a story walk to see a story through the eyes of a bird? How do we put a storyteller in your pocket so you can take them on a walk? How do we let you explore a landscape with stories installed within it? How do we tell you the stories of a tree or let a tree tell it’s own story? How do we share with you through a screen the breath-taking landscape of Wales and especially Dinefwr?

We will be offering two ways to watch online content.

Access to our a curated storytelling programme over the course of our online festival.

It will include exclusive digital experiences, first choice of booking onto Zoom events and our special global phone storytelling experience.
