Wee Write! Family Day

About Wee Write! Family Day

Looking for a fun day out for the little bookworms in your life? Celebrate their imagination at the Wee Write! Family Days! It’s an absolute must for the kids. Join us for a weekend of imaginative, literary fun! ​

There will be a fantastic mix of children’s authors, illustrators and storytellers, plus theatre shows, puppets and lots more!

Wee Write! will return in May to run events cancelled during and immediately after the so-called “Beast from the East”. 3 Schools days and 2 Family Days due to be held at The Mitchell Library were called off during the worst of the snowfall that hit much of the country in early March.

Wee Write! 2018 will stage its conclusion from May 18 to May 22 with the Schools Programme held on weekdays and the Family Days also held at The Mitchell Library on Saturday May 19 and Sunday May 20. The programming team for the festival are in contact with the authors who were originally due to appear so we can deliver as many of the originally intended sessions as possible.

For authors or participants not able to make the re-arranged days, ticket holders will be offered an alternative session or a refund. Further programme details will be made available as soon as possible at www.ayewrite.com/weewrite

Margaret Houston, Wee Write! programmer said: “Everyone involved in Wee Write! 2018 from the team at the Mitchell Library to those due to take part were incredibly disappointed when we were forced to postpone the original dates. However we were determined to get as many of the sessions rescheduled as we possibly could and we are working hard to make sure we deliver events that bring unforgettable experiences. As soon as we have the line-ups complete, we will let ticket holders and Wee Write! fans of all ages know about the fantastic events we have planned.”

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Wee Write! Family Day are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
