Author School Sessions

Engaging young people with the arts and developing a thirst for reading  and the arts is core to the objectives of the volunteers who plan and deliver the festival. 


During the St Duthac Book & Arts Festival in 2022 authors Corrina Campbell and Aioffe Lyal visited Tain Royal Academy.



Music for Children


We had packed out sessions for this fun packed workshop with Steve from Drumfun. Steve has been banging his drum in schools and communities throughout Scotland since 2000, and his workshops are well known for being heaps of fun and leaving everyone with that feel good factor.


They played games, sang songs, created rhythms and learned some funky African beats. No previous experience was necessary and all drums were provided. It was a workshop for all ages, and everyone including grandparents got down to some funky grooves!

Reading Corner in the Pop Up Bookshop

We opened our pop-up bookshop in a new location - Clan Ross Room, Royal Hotel.  We set up a childrens corner with books, games and toys to entertain while parents browsed the huge selection of new and pre-loved books.
