Telling Tales in Balingup
An annual event held over middle weekend of July school holidays
Detailed information is available on the Telling Tales website
Balingup has demonstrated a strong tradition and commitment to the development of creative and innovative events and festivals for adults and families.
The inaugural 'Telling Tales in Balingup' was held in July 2010. Following its huge success, it was decided to stage the Festival annually.
Telling Tales in Balingup is always scheduled to take place over the middle weekend of the July school holidays.
Balingup is fortunate to have some very creative people within our community. Local authors, story tellers and illustrators have enthusiastically supported the event in past years, offering to participate in the development of this unique children's literacy program.
The event is organised by a small committee of dedicated local volunteers working through the Balingup Progress Association. We welcome new members!
Many published WA authors and illustrators present interactive workshops throughout the weekend. Multiple sessions on offer at any given time allow you to select a session which best suits you and your children.
The program consists of four one hour sessions/workshops per day, each session running for approximately one hour. Ten sessions will be run concurrently in each of the four time slots, allowing children and families to attend a session which is both age appropriate and appealing.
