Storytelling Festival 2024

Following the success of last year’s Festival of Digital Storytelling where Hounslow’s communities and residents were invited to share their own stories, tales, fables and memories, Hounslow’s Storytelling Festival 2024 will bring the magic of the spoken word to all town centres.

The Poetry Takeaway

2 June, 7 July, 4 August and 1 September, Chiswick Flower Market

Free, all ages.

“People realise their lives are poetry when their stories are given back to them.”

In partnership with Chiswick Flower Market, The Poetry Takeaway will do exactly what they promise: serve up personalised, quality Poetry to visitors: performed and wrapped to Takeaway. Come closer, don’t be shy! Our local chef poets will serve you the stories you tell them, in the form of poems.


Saturday 10, Sunday 18, Saturday 24 August & Sunday 1 September, Hounslow High Street

Free, all ages.

Step into a vibrant world of cultures, flavours, stories and rhythms with “Fruit.”

Follow the experiences of different people from across the world as they share their stories and celebrate the cultures and world-experiences that make up Hounslow’s thriving community.

Each story you see will embody the essence of Banana, Papaya, Mango, or Apple. Look for the “Fruit” stand on Hounslow High Street and start your journey.
