BIG LIT, now in its ninth year, just gets bigger and bigger! It’s now five bumper days of poetry, launches, prose, talks, film, puppets, history, workshop, buskers, song, installation, exhibition, politics, music and cabaret, and a children’s programme of magical time travel, folk tale and madcappery. As always our programme is a mixed bag of local talent as well as talent from further afield.
Scotland’s story features large - Scotland’s history told from the point of view of women who lived it, benefits of Scottish cooking, the story of the Scottish clarsach, Gaelic Song, how The Church of Scotland rose to the challenges of The Great War, a memoir about Scottish novelist Muriel Spark and a commemoration of The Battle of George Square, Glasgow in this centenary year. All this and so much more. We're sure you’ll find something to entertain, engage or make you think about the issues we all care about and need to address.
