Schools’ programme

A range of events for schools will be taking place in the weeks leading up to the Festival, and during the weekend itself.

The illustrator Kate Leiper and storytellers Alice Fernbank and Becca Harris will be working with children and young people in local schools on the theme of Fantastic Beasts and Mythical Creatures.

We will be displaying some of the results of their labours in The Guildhall over the Festival weekend.

Schools will also be invited to send students to talks taking place in Tweedmouth on Festival Friday.

All of these events are provided free of charge, thanks to the generosity of our sponsors.
