About us

Based in Berwick upon Tweed, Wilson’s home town, we are a group of enthusiasts and our aim is to breathe new life into “Wilson’s Tales of the Borders, and of Scotland. Historical, Traditionary and Imaginative.”

We aim to see the Tales re-presented/brought to life in a variety of different art forms to be enjoyed by current and future generations, commissioning everything from short films and music to radio plays and storytellers. We are also looking for reading groups to read and rate the tales in order to compile a database that can signpost people to the more popular tales, and any aspiring writers to re-write some of them in more easily accessible English.

 'Round Lindisfarne' is one print from a contemporary set of illustrations for 'The Red Hall or Berwick 1296' by Morag Eaton. This image inspired by a line from the Tale features on the cover of our new publication 'Wilson's Tales of the Borders Revisited, Volume I'.
