Sadly, due to illness, we have to announce, as of Thursday 14 February, Doddie Weir will not be able to attend for his Winter Words event, His Name'5 Doddie. The event is still very much going ahead with Stewart Weir, Doddie's ghostwriter who was to take the stage with Doddie, and money will be raised for Doddie's foundation - working to find treatments and a cure for Motor Neurone Disease (MND).

Stewart will still take the session and continue to talk about Doddie's book, his relationship with Doddie, and the process of ghostwriting. Doddie says:

"Sorry to be missing the Winter Words Festival tomorrow. Sometimes these things can't be helped but I'm sure you will find Stewart entertaining and able to give a very personal insight into writing My Name'5 Doddie."

We have lots of copies of Doddie’s signed book for those who were looking forward to taking one away with them and, for all with tickets for this event, we will be donating £5 of the £10 ticket price to Doddie's motor neurone foundation.

The Box Office team are working to contact everyone who has booked for Friday evening's event, but if visitors have any questions, we ask that you please get in touch.

We send our very best wishes to Doddie Weir, and look forward to sharing news of the amount raised for his charity from the donations.
