#WigtownWednesdays | Live midweek events

9 April 2020

One thing the lockdown has shown is how essential culture is - and how important it is that we find new ways to interact with audiences at this time.

In this spirit, we are launching #WigtownWednesdays, a regular midweek evening slot for free live online events, from author talks, to a monthly book club, literary launches to quizzes.
