Between The Forest / Police Box Stage and The Beer Tent we’ll have a Scottish Poetry Library Stall along with workshop space, a ‘zine stall and loads of brilliant live music from The Forest / Police Box Stage.

We’ve got two exciting poetic adventures for you to experience:

From 2pm on Saturday we’ve got a Poetry Postcard & Poster Making workshop.

* We’ll provide the words (a la magnetic poetry) and help you screen print your own original poetry poster or post card. Our Screen Printing Expert will be on hand to help you make everything look beautiful.

If you don’t feel like making your own poem some friends and I will be hanging out with copies of our favourite poems to pass on along with other free goodies. The people (and poems) will change so come early and come often.
