Perth will celebrate Scotland's Year of Stories with a series of Festivals over 2022 - make sure to join us for one or all!
Stories are a vital part of Scotland’s culture and every community has a different tale to tell. Shared stories, whether spoken, written, sung or filmed are what give a sense of place, history and belonging. This year you can look forward to events by community groups, museums, heritage sites and other visitor attractions with storytelling always at the heart of it.
Perth City and Towns is rich with stories, old and new, and we’re going to tell them throughout this year, across the whole area. We have a full year of activity planned, including festivals, a story trail, walks and adventures.
