Riots in Fishertown!

Find out how early 20th century Cromarty writer Donald Alexander Mackenzie caused a riot in Fishertown. His newspaper article offended the residents of fishertown so much they rioted in the streets.

With poet in residence Caroline Burrows, you'll take a look at what he wrote about Fishertown, the Northern Lights and more. You'll also visit his grave at the Gaelic Chapel burial ground (weather and legs permitting). Then you'll have a go at writing a poem on behalf of the Fishertown folk in response to his rude and inflammatory comments. 

Free event, but let us know if you are coming along, email or call 01381 600354

Tea and coffee provided, bring a packed lunch. Thank you Nora Watson for the photograph.
