Running in parallel with the main festival over recent years has been the mushrooming of a Schools Gala Programme which has attracted and engaged thousands of children, forming part of a strategy to build audiences and readers for the future.
The Schools Gala Day Programme offers fantastic opportunities for young readers and writers to become actively involved in the world of writing, to explore their own creativity, and above all, to have fun with words. This year’s Schools Gala Day takes place on Thursday 15 June.
Our schools events for primary schools have been developed with the support of key partners Historic Environment Scotland, the National Library of Scotland and LIVE Borders.
