Moffat for Loretto

KELSO author Alistair Moffat is to deliver the next Loretto Lecture at the Musselburgh boarding school.

The writer is a former director of the Edinburgh Festival Fringe and one-time head of programmes at Scottish Television. He’s a founder and director of both the Borders and Lennoxlove book festivals.

Mr Moffat, who is the current rector of the University of St Andrews, will talk on his project, Scotland’s DNA.

The Loretto Lectures are free and open to anyone. The school’s Jonathan Hewat said he hoped to welcome many people from the Borders to the talk on January 24.
