  • Brian Conaghan

Plus, we can’t be in Scotland without a ceilidh, this year with Reelie Jiggered Ceilidh Band

  • SLA Members - Early Bird £375.00 or £400 full price

Day delegate rates will be announced shortly – and the full programme will be in the next issue of School Librarian as well as on the website (keep watching).
