Scribblers Festival set to take over Subiaco

Scribblers Festival is set to take over Subiaco this May when it takes up residence in its new home – Subiaco Arts Centre.

The fun will culminate on the weekend on 8-9 May with the family program at the arts centre which will feature 26 local and interstate literary talents talking all things writing and creativity including making your own comic, Dreamtime stories and dance, and meeting Lego Masters superstars.

There will also be some special Mother’s Day pop-up events and a teen podcasters interviewing some of the festivals top talent. 

The family weekend will have a mix of free and ticketed events.
