Benderloch’s Bookends has given rise to a new slower-paced event called Souffle as part of a festival celebrating creativity as we age.

‘Instead of of one of our usual pop-ups we thought we would slow-down the pace and have a souffle instead,’ said Bookends founder Joy Cameron.

The chill out event will be on Friday May 17 from 11am to 6.30pm in the Reading Room at the Victory Halls and is free to  join in.

Bookends has filled its 100-year-old, wood-lined village hall with hundreds of pre-loved books,comfy sofas and the kettle is almost always on.

The May date’s activities are still being planned so watch The Oban Times for more information.

Events are being held across the whole of Scotland as part of Luminate 2019 from conversation, telling stories, sharing experiences, dance and theatre, proving that creativity has no age limits.
