Dear all
… there is plenty going on with Festival planning for 2019
See below for Festival outline
Our Short Story Competition was launched 1st November, with a closing date of midnight on Friday 22nd March.  Competition Rules are on the Festival website.  There are categories for adults and juniors (8-11 and 12-15) so do think about submitting an entry, and maybe encouraging children or grandchildren to enter.  If you have a contact with a school, please pass on details.
Christmas is coming and you may like to while away an hour or two with our 2018 Christmas Quiz (copy attached and also available to download from the website/Programme).  As last year it has a bookish/wordy theme.  There is a chance to win a £10 book token.  Closing date Saturday 5th January.
Lastly, the programme for 2019 is looking fantastic – both the year-long fringe and the main Festival weekend (28th – 30th June 2019).  Details of events are slowly being added to our website.  The Festival Brochure will be out end of March/beginning of April.  In the meantime, the attached Outline Programme will give you an indication of what’s coming up, when, and details of venue and tickets.  The Programme can also be downloaded from our website/Programme.
Reminder that some of our events sold out very quickly this year, so do book early.  Full details of 2019 events are gradually being added to the website.  Tickets can be ordered directly through me (by email or phone – 0787 1285606); via our Festival website, with payment via Paypal; or, from January, from the Almonry Museum (tel: 01386 446944).
Enjoy the Quiz, think about entering the Short Story Competition and, most importantly, save some dates for 2019 events!
Best wishes and a merry Christmas.
