Backstories is a multi-sited storytelling festival located in the suburbs of Perth and beyond.

Bring a picnic, something to sit on, and put your mingling hat on, it’s going to be a rippa arvo.

Our Hamersley location features storytellers Kosta Lucas and Prunella Riddle, facilitated by Mason Vellios. With music by Alana Fay.


WHAT TO BRING

Bring your own snacks, drinks, or even a picnic dinner. If you’d like to be comfortable, bring a picnic blanket or fold-out chairs.
