This event and the other two Poetry Breakfast events at this year’s festival will be webcast. Please note these are live streaming webcasts, we are not recording the events, so you can only watch them while they are live; also you will not find anything at the link above until the events actually begin. 

Wake up and smell the poetry!

Breakfast is the most important meal of the day—so make sure you begin the day well with a healthy portion of poetry! Our breakfast discussion events offer a relaxed start to the day with a group of poets and other festival participants exploring this year’s festival themes over coffee and pastries.

Polar bears, whalers and the northern lights: the north has long been a place of fascination. Join us as we unpick poetically what northness has come to mean for us, and consider how Scotland engages with and might learn from her more northerly neighbours.
