Aye Write 2019

Recommended Posts

The programme for the above is most impressive. Not so the prices. A few years ago I went to several events. My attendance declined as the prices increased. My income didn't increase by the same percentage! This year I can't afford to attend any. It's not just the event cost. Add in the online/tel booking fee, the cost of travelling from Loch Lomond, especially as many events involve using the train when concession cards are not usable and the total cost is prohibitive. I do appreciate that the organisers  want to make the festival bigger and better but, by so doing, they are denying the poorer among the population the opportunity to attend. Is Glasgow becoming the 'London' of Scotland where only those with money can attend cultural events...

I haven't had a chance to peruse the programme properly yet, Mary.  I asked for programme at the library but seems just to be out online at the moment. 

I expect Aye Write have a certain amount of money to put the festival on and have to charge to cover costs of participants.  Have a look on my Books and Talks Page.  There are usually a lot of reasonable and some free events on.   I am going tomorrow to Tribute to Tom Leonard and it is a donation at the door. 

I can't make any comparison to London as no idea what goes on there.   

You do a great job with events you organise in your neck of the woods.
