Leaving Iona-a storytelling event

October 3 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm

This Storytelling Event about Columba, uses the spoken word and clarsach. It is for adults but is also suitable for children.

It’ s Columba’s wake. But where does his body belong – in Donegal or Iona?

And who will tell the story – the monks, the poets or the women?

Join storytellers Heather Yule and Donald Smith, as they follow the inner and outer journeys of Colmcille/Columba.

Donald Smith is the Head of the Storytelling Centre in Edinburgh and our event is linked to the International Storytelling Festival being held there in October.

The Festival is supported by TRACS – Traditional Arts and Culture Scotland.



This will be something a bit different and promises to be very entertaining.

Entry by Donation

Followed by Tea/Coffee and Cakes/Biscuits.
