Imagine Something Different: The Scots Whay Hae! Podcast Talks To Jess Orr About Paisley Book Festival 2024...

For the latest Scots Whay Hae! podcast Ali spoke to Jess Orr (right), the Associate Programmer for the Paisley Book Festival, to learn all about this year's programme - and what a programme it is.

Jess explains this year's theme 'Imagine Something Different' as well as breaking down the various strands of the festival which include The Beautiful Game, Oot and Aboot, and Ireland in Focus.

She also talks about the Family Day and the extensive Schools programme, before the two go into details about just some of the individual events across the four days.

It's a thorough and enthusiastic conversation which really whets the appetite for what's to come. In its five-year lifespan Paisley Book Festival has quickly become a highlight of Scotland's cultural calendar, and, with events being held in new venues including Paisley Town Hall and Paisley Central Library, this year's is set to be the best yet. We hope to see you there...
