Callander Poetry Weekend - this weekend!

One of Scotland's best-loved poetry events takes place this weekend in the Perthshire town of Callander. Hosted by Sally Evans of Diehard books and Poetry Scotland, the event runs from early evening on Friday 3rd September until late afternoon on Sunday 5th.

Among the plethora of readings, highlights are sure to include the world premiere of THE HOME SERVICE or A Twentieth Century Life, being a mother's story in poems and songs presented by Brian Johnstone and Dave Burnett. Also featured are Lancashire dialect poetry (as an exiled Lancastrian, something close to my heart), tributes to the late Edwin Morgan, and readings from the likes of Eleanor Livingstone, Kona Macphee, Colin Will, Margaret Gillies Brown, Kevin Cadwallender, Judy Taylor, Sheila Templeton, Alan Gay, Chris Powici and many more. This is a free event - please do come along if you can!
