Words Weekend will celebrate the power of words and stories from 15-17 May 2020.
You will hear from national treasures, local favourites and stars of literature, radio, stage and screen. The packed programme will include a book fayre and the chance to meet some of your favourite authors plus workshops, walking tours and family activities, all of which will be British Sign Language interpreted.
The Words Weekend has been created by FANE after a successful festival in Gateshead in 2019. The company will go on to produce events in Salford and London this year.
