Fantastic Free Family Online Event – Sat 3rd Oct 10:00am UK Time

Join amazing childrens’ author, Viv French, and wonderful storyteller, Renita Boyle and myself on Saturday when we will be creating a story LIVE! with your help.

So, WE NEED YOUR HELP!

It’s not just the audiences who are missing the Wigtown Book Festival this year – the authors are missing the audiences too!

In this fun-filled family hour, three of Wigtown’s most devoted and adored children’s authors take on the 60-minute book challenge. That’s right! Taking up their roles as author (Vivian French), illustrator (Shoo Rayner) and storyteller (Renita Boyle) they battle towards creating, illustrating and telling a story based on Wigtown in just one hour. But they need your help – tune in to help shape the story and make your mark on Big Wig history.

How on Earth are we going to do it when we are in completely different parts of the country? Tune in to find out!
