Boswell Book Festival 2015

Anthony Quinn and Rachel Cooke

We are delighted to announce this year’s full programme of award winning writers, actors and musicians ready to soothe away any post-election blues. There is an air of celebration this year, not just as we re-launch the ‘World’s only Festival of Biography and Memoir’ in Ayrshire’s splendid Dumfries House, but also because our Festival runs parallel with the nationwide celebration of the anniversary of VE Day. To capture this moment, don’t miss the opportunity of hearing legendary actor John Standing, who was there – at the gates of Buckingham Palace on that famous night - or war hero Captain Eric ‘Winkle' Brown and his remarkable achievements. Why not scrutinise our online programme now then take your pick?
