The festival is organised by Heron & Willow, Jedburgh's Independent Bookshop and is funded through Scottish Borders Small Festival Fund.

Dean Freeman, who runs Heron & Willow, said: "The idea with the festival was to create lots of little events, people can pick and choose what they want to try. You could come to one thing or ten.

“But all of them are intended to be fun and useful. If you've always fancied listening to an author speak or try your hand at writing or telling a story – or just want to introduce your kids to The Goonies – then this is the place to do it. It's all free so there's nothing lost, but I really hope you'll come away having learnt something and created a great memory or two."
