Word 10 - University of Aberdeen Writers Festival

This is a past event

Join us for the 10th Festival Celebrations.

Word – University of Aberdeen Writers Festival will take place from 14 - 16 May at King’s College campus, and this year’s special 10th Birthday programme is practically bursting at the seams with readings, debate, film, exhibitions, poetry, and science events for all ages.

Highlights include events with Pauline McLynn, Benedict Allen, Louise Welsh, David Peace, Karen Dunbar, Simon King, William McIlvanney, Martin Bell and the première of Scottish Opera’s new 5:15 series.

Word also has a fantastic Schools' and Children's Festival sponsored by Marathon Oil. It has a packed line-up brimming with fun and imagination.

A lot of our events are free, thanks to our sponsors and supporters, (including joint title sponsors Talisman Energy and Wood Group), but places are limited, so be among the first to book tickets online from 29 March via www.abdn.ac.uk/word/programme, or by calling the Box Office 01224 641122. We hope you can join us for our tenth festival celebrations, it’s not one to miss!
