Stories will take centre stage across RBGE's four Gardens from 15 July to 15 October through enchanting audio trails inspired by words and nature.

From the rushes of Sunset Song to the tree inhabiting creatures of the Gruffalo, these stories have crossed Scotland and circled the world. Through the voices of Emma Thompson to Tilda Swinton and Karine Polwart, journey into a world of plants, folklore and adventure in the beautiful settings of our Botanic Gardens.

Look out for a series of newly commissioned music events later in the year featuring Rachel Sermanni, Hamish Hawk and Last Boy, shining a spotlight on the unique settings of Benmore, Logan and Dawyck Botanic Gardens through song, performance and spoken word.

Supported by EventScotland as part of the Year of Stories 2022.

Free entry at RBGE and the event is included in the admission price at the other three gardens
