StonyWords! was born in 1995 to brighten our lives during the dark January and early February days. You can expect: talks, quizzes, exhibitions, films, poetry (including election of the Bard of Stony Stratford), children’s events, films, and, of course, haggis on Burns Night. There may be workshops and demonstrations, chances to meet authors and illustrators, and musical events.

WOULD YOU like to put something on at the next StonyWords!? Anything vaguely to do with books, poetry, drama, and even music, will be welcome, AND we can help you find a venue for your event. Email to sign up or for more information.

Please go to our Whats On section for dates of next year's event or visit 

For further details please contact Rob and Liz Gifford, co-curators, telephone: 01908 562025 or email:
