We have invested in developing a website through which we will be sharing information about our increased programme of events and details about the festival itself. Having this online platform will also increase our ability to let a wider community of people know about The Wee Gaitherin and the wonderful poetry being created and shared; performed and cherished, and inspired during our festival, and the other activities listed above – via special news items, features, audio and video recordings and through celebrating and linking to the poets who get involved through all of these possibilities. We are also delighted to be able to direct people all around the world to Stonehaven, a place we love dearly, and have felt so welcome to be part of. We know that all who see how special Stonehaven is will want to experience that welcome too.
We want to thank The National Lottery Community Fund Scotland, for their commendation of The Wee Gaitherin in making this award to us. We also want to thank Aberdeenshire Council for a contribution of funding from the Kincardine and Mearns Area Committee Budget 2023/24.
