(CNS): Story tellers, poets, musicians and actors from Cayman, the Caribbean and the United States will come together over the next week for one of Cayman’s best loved free arts festivals. Gimistory opens at West Bay public beach tomorrow night at 7pm with a line-up of storytelling stars as well as some traditional fish fry fritters ‘n’ swanky. A casual affair that encourages people to bring their own blanket or chairs will see Cayman’s own Quincy Brown along with David Bereaux & Friends the Blacksage and internationally renouned comedian Ken Corsbie and many more offering over two hours of entertainment in the opening, open air, event.

Gimistory which is sponsored by Cayman national cultural foundation started in 1998 and is now a true highlight on the local arts calendar and widely acclaimed as one of the best storytelling festivals the world over. 

“CNCF’S Gimistory is an event for all ages, taking us back to a time when people provided their own entertainment; a time when the imagination created images more colourful than any television screen and family and friends came together at dusk to share tall tales,” said the CNCF’s- Lorna Bush.

Staring in West Bay Saturday, the tellers move to Ned Miller’s yard in North Side Monday evening and then to Bodden Town on Tuesday, East End Wednesday, George Town on Thursday before heading to the Sister Islands on Friday next week. The final appearance is at Smith Cove for the much loved duppy night.
