The four-day McLellan Poetry Fringe Festival started on a high note with an Arran Poets’ night which saw past and present Arran poets entertain a packed Brodick Bar audience. The poets included, left to right, Damian Beeson Bullen, Eilidh ‘Helen’ How, Jules Lee, Gillian Lockhart, David Underdown, Tim Pomeroy and Cicely Gill. The festival featured a number of spoken word events and shows, from locals and visitors, which culminated in a collaborative performance by award-winning poet Kevin P Gilday and multi-instrumentalist Ralph Hector.
