For those who like their StAnza listings on paper, you'll have to wait just a little while longer for the full brochure, but the Byre Theatre's own new brochure is just out with their usual spread of StAnza's Byre events, so allows a little paper browsing.

We know from the laments of those who were unsuccessful that there's always a push to obtain tickets for the more intimate events with limited seating, so this year we've added a second all day workshop at Balmungo, to give some more people a chance at getting tickets, and there are also three morning workshops, and six Round Table events.  So good luck at getting all the tickets you want. Most of our headliners, including this year Mark Doty, Paula Meehan, John Hegley, Robin Robertson, Gillian Clarke, Liz Lochhead and Luke Wright, are performing in our larger venues, where there should be no difficulty getting tickets at this time. And of course there are as many free events as well, making StAnza the festival you can enjoy without breaking the bank.
