Winter Words Wows Again!

Pitlochry Festival Theatre played host to more than 30 authors, wordsmiths, filmmakers, adventurers and journalists for their 13th annual Winter Words literary festival. It was another thought-provoking programme of inspiring events that definitely stimulated both mind, body and literary souls!

This year’s stellar line-up featured notorious politician Vince Cable who shared his view on the British Economy and how best it should be managed over the next decade and beyond. Nicholas Crane – whose face and name is easily recognised from BBC’s Coast – delivered a fascinating talk on his new book, which brilliantly describes the evolution of Britain’s countryside and the development of its cities.

Award-winning crime author Christopher Brookmyre read from his critically acclaimed new novel Black Widow, which revives the much loved maverick reporter Jack Parlabane. Nature and wildlife man John Lewis- Stempel, winner of the Wainwright prize and author of the critically acclaimed Meadowland delivered a heart-warming talk on his book Where Poppies Blow about the human condition in wartime – it was truly captivating and inspiring. . .

For the food enthusiasts out there, Kirsten Gilmour of Aviemore’s The Mountain Café discussed the Kiwi-influenced recipes in her book. And what’s the use in just hearing about the food – you also got to sample some of Kirsten’s delicious delights too!

It was four days of wonderful events and we would love to hear your reviews and see your pictures.  Be sure to tag us in any of your social media posts!
