The festival is expected to attract 10,000 visitors with its weekend programme of readings, music, exhibitions and screenings as well as its Gaelic and Children’s festivals. Author Alan Spence, the artistic director, says ‘There’s just so much to see and do and with such a diverse programme of events, there really is something for everyone.’ WORD takes place from Fri 11-Sun 13 May.
