New Venue For Boswell Book Festival 8-10 May 2015
Dumfries House, Ayrshire is the new venue for this year’s Festival.
For the first time we will be staging the main events in this architectural gem. A mere stone’s throw from our original venue at Auchinleck House, Dumfries House will allow us to expand our audiences and the Festival, offering further opportunities to strengthen our links with the local community of Auchinleck. Auchinleck House, owned and managed by The Landmark Trust will still be included in the Festival programme.
The Festival is run by The Boswell Trust, a Scottish registered charity whose Trustees include the senior direct descendant Margaret Boswell Elliot who says: "I am so delighted on behalf of my brilliant ancestor, James Boswell that this Festival which shines the spotlight on him continues to grow and develop in interesting ways. Roll on this year’s Festival which promises to be a feast of gossip, literature and debate which my ancestor would have relished."
We can’t wait.
