The Storytelling Festival of Ljungby in Sweden is the oldest annual storytelling festival in the Nordic countries. Since 1990, storytellers, folklorists, and story-lovers have met here to share stories, and discuss topics related to transmission and safeguarding of oral tradition. This year, special attention will be given to that the Land of Legends was adopted to the UNESCO Register of Good Safeguarding Practice under the Convention for the Safeguarding of the Intangible Cultural Heritage during the UNESCO committee meeting in November 2018. Therefore we would like to invite you to join us for a two-day seminar on the topic Oral Storytelling Tradition.
Each year, just before midsummer, Ljungby Storytelling Festival takes place. This year, the dates are set to June 13 to June 16. For four days, The Land of Legends will be filled with storytelling, music, workshops and lectures. During the festival, there is an easy to follow “English track” – where performances are held in English.
