Ferry Tales Community Sessions


Due to COVID-19, Scottish Government guidelines and our commitment to safeguarding audiences and those we work with, it is with great sadness that we announce our Ferry Tales Community Sessions will no longer be going ahead, as planned, as of now for the next few months.

We would like to thank our partners, venues, funders, supporters and audiences for their continued generous support.

Our thoughts are with everyone who is struggling at this difficult time.



Ferry Tales celebrates the waters surrounding Scotland’s western isles and the voyages across them made by thousands of locals, workers and visitors each year.

With the help of local communities and world class artists, Ferry Tales brings a heartfelt story, told using English, Gaelic and BSL (British Sign Language), to three of Scotland’s major ferry routes: Wemyss Bay – Rothesay, Oban – Craignure, and Ullapool – Stornoway.

Perhaps you are in a local choir, part of a local band, society or club? We’re looking for people to get involved in our community welcome, creating a 10 minute soundscape to greet passengers as they disembark from the ferries on to the islands.

Come along to our community sessions to find out more. You can book in for a session below or you can just turn up on the night.
