Boswell Book Festival 2014

Simply fantastic!

Janice Forsyth

Boswell on TV.....fresh happenings......

2014's Festival has now been and gone but as you'll shortly discover - the unique spirit of our Festival will live on this year when Bozzy takes centre stage in a major new BBC TV series presented by Andrew Marr on Scotland's greatest writers.  Check in for more info soon.....

A huge THANK YOU however to everyone who came to this year's Festival; to all our sponsors; to our marvellous audience; to all our volunteers and of course to all our wonderful authors and performers who certainly made sure we lived up to Janice Forsyth's splendid proclamation!

Dates for 2015 - coming soon.
