The Switch On – Nov 2015
To coincide with the town’s annual Christmas lights switch on celebrations in November 2015, the Stove collaborated with WagTongues pop-up bookstore to present a three day festival of light and literature. This included our monthly Brave New Words open mic, a bookstore promoting the work of local authors with readings from writers throughout the day.
On the day of the Switch On the town was all lit up with mesmerising interactive light installations in three of the High Street’s busiest closes, accompanied by a soundscape of original poetry and prose from some of Scotland’s most innovative writers. Followed in the evening by blind readings to evoke all the senses from three established Scottish writers with musical accompaniment from Fraser Clark of the Fraser Clark Collective.
