Scrievit in Scots

Scrievit in Scots

A celebration of Lallans Scots and its historical and contemporary significance in both a cultural and political context. The evening will include a panel discussion and readings by Rab Wilson and Stuart Paterson, two pre-eminent Scottish authors/poets and exponents of the use of the Scots Language in their written work. 

The event will be chaired by Dr Valentina Bold, Reader in Literature & Ethnology at the University of Glasgow in Dumfries, who has published widely on Scottish culture.

This is a FREE ticketed event which will be recorded as part of a planned documentary to be broadcast by NVTV about links between Lallans Scots and the Ulster Scots spoken language.
