Join the Old Town Caddies as they take you on a Greatest Hits tour of Auld Reekie in story, song and rhyme. You’ll meet characters such as Deacon Brodie and Aggie the Fish Wife as the caddies lead you through the cobbled streets and closes to share the secrets of old Edinburgh with you! Interactive storytelling with the always entertaining Macastory. The event involves walking on hilly terrain.
Our Family Events invite people of all ages to join in the delights of storytelling, from mystical unicorns and Robin Hood, to Greek gods and outdoor play, there’s something for everyone!
In Scotland’s Year of Stories, the Scottish International Storytelling Festival: Keep It Lit invites everyone to the ceilidh; locally, nationally and globally. At the core of Scotland’s culture and identity is the hospitable hearth - a place of solidarity and welcome for friend and stranger alike. Round that symbolic fire, experiences and memories are shared and hope affirmed.

MIX UP REVIEWS: ★★★★★
Archie (Age 10) & Maddie (Age 8) - ★★★★★
"We loved this show. We learned so much about Edinburgh history and some of the streets we know. Archie's highlight was becoming an apprentice caddie... Maddie's highlight was busting Deacon Brodie by providing incriminating evidence during his trial!!!
We loved the songs, stories and different characters and will do a High street tour of closes on a better day. Thank you Fergus and Ron.
Maddie wants to add that the rapping judge was awesome!
That's 5 stars from us!!!"
