The fourth Solas Festival will be held 21st – 23rd June 2013 near Perth*.
After three great years at Wiston Lodge, South Lanarkshire, we’ve decided it’s time to move on up to The Bield at Blackruthven. The new site retains the intimate feel we have all grown to know and love. But, it will be easier to travel to and has a great range of accommodation options, including hiring your own handmade yurt.
We already have some amazing performers and speakers lined up, including Karine Polwart, Liz Lochhead, We Were Promised Jetpacks, Breabach, Iain Morrison, Margie Gillis, The National Theatre of Scotland and Louise Welsh. Linda Woodhead, Andy Wightman and Ian Mobsby will be joining us in Head Space, where we’ll also be looking at Scottish Independence, criminal justice and childhood. But if you’re already keen to buy your ticket, pop on over to the Box Office.
This year, in addition to a range of ethically-sourced and local food,we’re featuring a new ‘Scottish Larder’ venue where you’ll hear some new ideas on food sustainability and equality – look out for announcements about these new sessions soon.
