Dugie the Dinosaur: A Multi-Sensory Story 

This year the Book Festival have been working with authors Anne and Steve Brusatte, inclusive arts specialists The Arts End of Somewhere and the PAMIS Art for Wellbeing Group, consisting of participants with profound and multiple learning disabilities, to create a multi-sensory story based on Anne and Steve’s beautiful book Dugie the Dinosaur, Scotland’s Sauropod. 

Using interactive multi-sensory stimuli audience members will venture with Dugie all the way up to his home on the Isle of Skye then hold on tight as a storm batters the island and its dinosaur residents.  

In order to allow audience members watching from home to also engage in multi-sensory aspects, The Arts End of Somewhere and PAMIS Art for Welling Group have created this resource to guide you through the sensory story.  

So, whether you’re watching the event live, on catchup, or reading the story by itself, we hope you enjoy stomping into the world of Dugie the Dinosaur!
