Grazing and watering holes

There are some great places to graze and some excellent watering holes to enjoy during WFFS.

Our food partner is Hullabaloo, which is ideally placed at the Robert Burns Film Theatre – so you find something to peck, nibble or gnaw before and between events or treat yourself to a meal to round off a full day at the festival.

Festival-goers can also enjoy special offers at Hullabaloo, the Hubbub café at Gracefield Arts Centre and the Theatre Royal Café.

There are also lots of comfortable and welcoming places to stay if you’re from outwith the area – watch this space as we’ll soon be posting some suggestions.
