CoastWord @ Dunbar Sci-Fest 2015


CoastWord is supporting the adult programme of the wonderful Dunbar Sci-Fest. We are delighted to be involved again and we are giddy with excitement to bring you two out of their four fantastic nights of Science.

Are you ready? ...

The Nights!

Rally & Broad, Women in Science 

Friday 13th March 


Dunmuir Hotel 


We did a little happy dance when we got a 'Yes!' from the fantastic Rally & Broad and we are thrilled beyond sensible to bring this literary cabaret to Dunbar. As the kids say, 'it's going to be awesome!' 

And now for the 'science' bit....

Rally & Broad are delighted to bring their eclectic mix of words, music and lyrical delight to Dunbar Science Festival! Celebrating the theme of 'Women in Science' and featuring hosts Jenny Lindsay and Rachel McCrum; Scots singer songwriter Kirsty Law; science writer and performer Emily Dodd, poet Russell Jones and the surreal musical stylings of Zara Gladman. Come with open ears....

Here is a new thing to bring us together in conversation and thought.

‘New Thing’ will be a series of informal discussions, talks, presentations and performances organised around a theme, idea or to accompany an event.

Our first meeting will be held before Dunbar Sci-Fest’s ‘How Light Inspires Creativity’ on the 15th March from 19:45 at The Dunbar Townhouse

We hope to see you there.
