Sunday 30th June, Alasdair Gray and Liz Lochhead

Two of Scotland’s greatest living creative forces will join us on the meadow this Sunday for an afternoon of readings. Alasdair Gray will preform the Just So stories and Hans Christian Anderson and Liz Lochhead will perform ‘Bairnsong’ ‘Martha’s song’ and ‘Nonsense Rhymes for Molly’.

Children (and adults) are encouraged to dress as their favourite Just So creature and there will be many activities for all ages to enjoy including food from Chef Charlie Cameron, paper aeroplane making, face painting, window boxes for sale, books for sale, home baking, animal crafts and lots more….

We have a large marquee – even if it’s wet we will be gong ahead with this unique event.
