Boswell Book Festival 2015

Thank you to everybody who came to the Boswell Book Festival. To our authors, who were magnificent, delivering an unrivalled programme of talks; to our wonderful record audiences who made the pilgrimage to our stunning new venue; to our hard working volunteers whose stamina throughout the weekend was most impressive; to all the staff at Dumfries House who looked after us so very well and of course to all our kind sponsors. 

Everyone had a very important role to play and all on the Festival team value that so very much. Thank you indeed.
