Angus Year of Stories Festival

Angus Year of Stories Festival

Campaign Background

The Year of Stories 2022 will provide businesses and organisations with opportunities to engage and inspire locals and visitors to discover, celebrate and share their own stories of Scotland.

The year will encourage locals and visitors to experience a diversity of voices, take part in events and explore the places, people and cultures connected to all forms of our stories, past and present. It will contribute to recovery from the pandemic and inspire new stories of Scotland to be shared.

The year has five key themes, which are:

  • Iconic stories and storytellers
  • New stories
  • Scotland’s people and places
  • Local tales and legends
  • Inspired by nature

More information about this themed year is available on the VisitScotland Year of Stories marketing toolkit.
