Like so many other events Beyond the Border has been postponed. It’s a shame. The last time I went was at St Donat’s, which is a beautiful venue for a festival like this. The next time the festival runs it will be somewhere else, and I’m not sure that’ll work for me. Sometimes it is a good idea to know when you just want the memories of a thing to be left as something beautiful to look back on.
It might be now for me. It might be a good time to leave it anyway. Given that it’s postponed for now I don’t really have to decide. I hope that it does get going again next year. It would be a shame for it to end completely.
Which is a massive shame really. I’m going to miss it. Last time it was an amazing experience and a huge amount of fun too. I’m a big fan of storytelling. It’s important. It is just so fundamental and core to how we understand things.
I’ve always found the storytelling at Beyond the Border to be incredible. The range of stories and tellers is so rich that I don’t think I’ve ever been disappointed in all of the years that I’ve been there.
Maybe disappointed with the weather, but even then, not that often.
I hope it’s as amazing as ever this year. I’m just so sorry not to be there.
The last time I went to Beyond the Border I discovered these. That was back in 2014. I’ve waited two years to have the pleasure again, and it was worth the wait.
I’d hoped that these would be available again at Beyond the Border, and they were, possibly one of the best foods I’ve ever had. The amazing Onion Bhajee Scotch Egg. Believe me when I say that there is truly nothing better at all.
I ate quite a few of these last weekend and I love them so much that I ended up bringing home a box load of them. They’re awesome.
I’ve been going to this amazing storytelling festival for well over a decade now. And, even though it’s now only on every other year it is as wonderful and magical as ever it was. I love it. It is a complete change of pace for a few delightful days and is, in my opinion, completely unmissable.
I shall be posting a few of the highlights over the coming days as there were many, and not all of them were story related, but all of them were wonderful.
