Families can celebrate Samhuinn with spooky games and stories

Kids and their families get their own go at celebrating a different sort of Hallowe’en with our unique event, Family Samhuinn. On the Sunday before Samhuinn Fire Festival 2017, our volunteers will gather in the Scottish Storytelling Centre for an afternoon of storytelling and drama games. In keeping with the creepy holiday, we will be sharing stories of varying spookiness both from Scotland and further afield.
