The Northern Stories Festival: The SWH! Podcast Talks To Calvin Wilson & Gail Anthea Brown...


For the latest SWH! podcast Ali spoke to Lyth Arts Centre's Marketing Director Calvin Wilson & author Gail Anthea Brown to learn all about The Northern Stories Festival, which is on between 7th - 16th October across Caithness.

The two talk about the themes and ideas behind the festival, the extensive programme, the different strands, just a few of the highlights, and a whole lot more. They also discuss the importance of storytelling in bringing people together, and building bridges with other countries and cultures.


The festival aims to celebrate ancient Nordic connections and the close ties to North America, connecting the lochs and coastline of the North Highlands, the fjords of Norway and the Great Lakes of Canada.


To achieve this it offers an exciting programme of online and in-person events which include an international line-up of performers and story-tellers from the Highlands, Scandinavia and Canada.


With talks, workshops, films and exhibitions, there will be something for all the family to get involved in.
