Applications to Trade at Beyond the Border International Storytelling Festival are now open.

At this stage we are doing everything we can to make sure that we can go ahead with a festival in 2021 in whatever capacity and shape and with whatever guidance is in place for outdoor events and activities at that time from Welsh Government.

As you may know Welsh Government has recently approved a handful of cultural events to take place in May and June.  Based on all our conversations to date with the relevant parties, we are hopeful we will also get a go ahead, however it is likely that final confirmation will be received very close to the time of the festival. As we all know the situation is fluctuating constantly and though it is difficult to plan ahead we are doing everything we can to make Beyond the Border Storytelling Festival 2021 happen.

Beyond the Border is looking for food traders, charities and unique stalls to take a pitch at beyond the Border 2021. Each application is assessed on its own merit and its fit into the ethos of Beyond the Border to provide festival attendees with a range of high-quality food, drinks and goods so please give as much information as possible including photographs of your pitch and products. Each stall is priced individually, based on the number of staff, the size of the stall, the requirements of the stall and the product on sale.

If you would like to Trade at Beyond the Border 2021 contact all applicants must complete a Traders Application Form. Successful applicants will be contacted with further information and details of the pitch location and price.

Traders Application Form 2021 

We’re looking for friendly, enthusiastic people to join us for the pivotal year for Beyond the Border as we work together to successfully deliver our first festival at our new site at National Trust Dinefwr in Llandeilo. A pivotal year made all the more interesting because it was postponed from 2020 and is responding to our current context, in 2021.

At this stage we are doing everything we can to make sure the festival happens in whatever size we are allowed to do so, and with whatever safety measures we need to put in place within these exceptional circumstances and if when succeed we are likely to be one of very few festivals taking place in the summer of 2021 in Wales.

If you’re interested in being part of the team that transports it’s audiences into the magical world of storytelling at Dinefwr we have roles available that require different levels of skills and experience. The main quality we’re looking for is excitement to be part of the team that delivers Beyond the Border – Wales’ International Storytelling Festival in 2021.

There are a limited number of volunteer positions. Volunteers will receive a weekend pass to the festival, free camping and one free meal a day.

Volunteers will typically be allocated 3 shifts of between 3-5 hours in length over the weekend.
We will also be train/brief you on safeguarding and working within Welsh Government Guidelines relevant at that time.
