LIVE 16-30 OCTOBER 2020

BIG LIT has gone digital.  We should have been delivering BIG LIT at the end of April. But Coronavirus intervened. So undeterred we grasped the digital nettle and are bringing you a selection of events, tasters and brand new offerings in our online programme, hoping against hope we can bring you BIG LIT Live in 2021. We are delighted to bring you this virtual programme of interviews, talks, poetry, music and film - a selection of the fantastic events postponed from April. 

Each event is a self-contained film; some we have recorded ourselves where we were able, others have been provided for us, kindly recorded by the artists themselves. 
The events are all available here from 16th October and will remain live on the site until the 30th October.  

We are very grateful to our performers for going the extra mile to help us pull this programme together. We hope you enjoy it.

Bakings is The Bakehouse’s new online literary magazine – poems submitted by invitation alongside recordings of featured poets from previous Bakehouse events. Trawl through the site to find fine poetry from Scotland and beyond alongside film poems and illustrations. We’ll be sending videos out  intermittently to a growing national and international database. Videos have been filmed by artist Ken Smyth at The Bakehouse, or submitted courtesy of various clever folk on personal technology. Enjoy.
