Words Weekend 2019
Philippa Perry In Conversation
Philippa will share thoughts from her latest book, the Book You Wish Your Parents Had Read and Your Children Will Be Glad That You Did, on how strong and loving bonds can be made with your children, and how such attachments give a better chance of good mental health, in childhood and beyond.
Start time: 11am
Venue: Sage Two
As everyone deserves equal access to entertainment, every event in Words Weekend will be accessible. In addition to the gold standard access provision at Sage Gateshead, all events will be BSL interpreted and there will be a roaming interpreter facilitating conversations throughout the venue.
Words Weekend will post a Social Story on their website for anyone who might find new situations difficult and would like to know what to expect from the festival. Sage Gateshead also offer short familiarisation visits.
We request that everyone is tolerant to the needs of other audience members, some of whom might need to take a break from a space during an event, for example. Lighting will be raised slightly higher than usual, sound levels will be limited at most events and more comfortable seating options will be offered in some spaces. Please remember that not all disabilities or health conditions are visible. If you have any questions please contact [email protected]
