Seil Winter Festival is inviting young and old to awake their inner dragon this weekend.

Age is no limit to a magic dragon-themed multi-sensory storytelling session and art workshops on Saturday January 15 at Seil Island Hall.

All the sessions are free thanks to festival funding from The Corra Foundation, with donations welcome on the day in aid of the hall’s play park renovations.

The storytelling with Cat Train and Claudie Layden from Corelo Productions starts at 10.30am, with their tales inspiring an art adventure led by Dutch modern artist Nelleke de Noo. Weather depending, it could involve a trip down to the beach.

And the fun continues for adults from 1.30pm with a magical art reflection workshop inspired by nature.

Seil Winter Festival has already hosted a visit to the island by Japanese-style drumming group Tsuchigumo Daiko. More events coming up include a chance to learn circus skills and a full-on fire breathing show.

To book spaces at any of the sessions on January 15, email for more details.
