Jings, crivvens and help ma Boab – whit on earth would Granpaw mak' of it?

Scotland's favourite family is set to be honoured with a late night, whisky-fuelled, event devoted to the much-loved characters of The Broons comic strip.

More than 70 years of adventures of Maw, Paw, Granpaw Hen, Maggie and co are to be celebrated like never before at a literary festival in Edinburgh.

The one-off event promises a language masterclass exploring some of their most famous phrases, readings of classic stories and poetry inspired by their ups and downs, and the chance to dress up in classic Broons garb such as aprons, tweed jackets and cloth caps.
