DINGWALL's eagerly anticipated annual literary festival is adapting to the coronavirus crisis.

This year, Word on the Street is moving off the street and into your home via an impressive online programme.

Now in its sixth year, the three-day extravaganza of readings, workshops, author talks, music, drama, comedy, walks and children’s events normally takes place in shops, clubs, halls and on the streets of Dingwall.

In a year that is anything but normal,, the team behind the newly dubbed Word off the Street will harness technology.

The programme is presented over three days and twelve sessions and includes an array of novelists, poets, writers of fiction and non-fiction, a pair of blues musicians, a special kids’ section – and even online wine tasting!

Each session, whether about a Berlin Wall Art Gallery or Voices of the Windrush Generation, offers an opportunity to listen, chat and question our guests.

Word off the Street is supported by the Highland Council and organised under the banner of Dingwall Players.
