Shalla at the Big DoG festival
Jayne, Shalla and the Larking Lambs at the Big DoG festival
We had a fabulous time at the first Big DoG Festival held in Dumfries organised by the Wigtown Festival Company. We were really chuffed to be asked to take part in what was a fantastic line-up of writers, musicians and storytellers including Debi Gliori, Jonathan Meres, Mairi Hedderwick and Chae Strathie. We read all of our Beltie stories as well as playing games like pairs or pelmanism to use its proper name and doing our great ‘sticky’ farm activity. We hope our lovely audience had as much fun as we did – they were very good at kicking their heels in the air and winking!
