The event will include a presentation by local primary school children retelling stories and myths associated with the west side of Lewis, as part of Scotland's Year of Stories 2022.
During the winter months the children accompanied volunteers from Comann Eachdraidh an Taobh Siar (the local history society) on environmental walks to three local sites and heard about the rich cultural and linguistic heritage associated with these special places. The children then created imaginative responses to the stories they heard during creative workshops, reinforcing their grasp of the stories and developing their own artworks.

Sgeulachdan Siarach has been supported by the Year of Stories 2022 Community Stories Fund. This fund is being delivered in partnership between VisitScotland and Museums Galleries Scotland with support from National Lottery Heritage Fund thanks to National Lottery players.
