12-20 February 2016
Here’s a flavour of some of the names (and faces!) in this years festival:
Gregor Fisher is one of our most popular actors. His portrayal of the hilarious and yet oddly affecting Rab C. Nesbitt has earned him a place in TV history. He has enjoyed a long and varied career on stage, film and TV but joins us at Winter Words to discuss his memoir The Boy From Nowhere
Veteran Labour MP, Father of the House and Scotland’s longest serving politician, Tam Dalyell’s new book offers a personal reflection in why the UK is on the brink of the most serious constitutional crisis in its history
Magnus Linklater, Chairman of the Little Sparta Trust, joins us to tell the story of the extraordinary creation of Ian Hamilton Finlay’s garden in the Pentland Hills near Edinburgh which is widely regarded as one of the most significant gardens in Britain. In addition to being a spectacular example of garden design, it also features almost 300 artworks by Finlay and others which form an integral part of the garden scheme.
With his musical partner, Roy Williamson, Ronnie Browne became a national figure as one half of popular folk duo, The Corries. Join us as he explores describes his childhood in war time and the austerity Britain of the 1950s and 60s, his musical career including Scotland's unofficial national anthem, Flower of Scotland, the death of Roy Williamson and the following years as a solo artist.
Frances Quinn will join us fresh from wowing judges with her imaginative showstoppers and extraordinary baking skill to win The Great British Bake Off.
And the world’s most prestigious mountain film festival is returning on Sat 20th Feb to round off the festival. Banff was sold out last time, so get in quick.
The full festival lineup will be confirmed by mid-December with a brochure and tickets available from early January 2016.
