Big Do G

Big DoG is bounding back to Dumfries in 2022 from 1-3rd of April.

After two years of online festivals, we are thrilled to bring the annual Big DoG Festival - named in honour of Nana, the big dog who looks after the Darling children in Peter Pan - back to Dumfries. Join some of our most loved children’s authors and illustrators for a weekend of barking fun where everyone has a tale. 

He'll be visiting some of Dumfries' most well-known venues, including Moat Brae House, Dumfries Museum, Theatre Royal and more, making sure the Big DoG fun is spread all around the town. This year's programme is packed full of the nation's most beloved children's authors including Benjamin Zephaniah, Gill Arbuthnott and David Macphail, with more fun and surprises packed into the busy weekend programme.
