Regrettably, we are having to postpone the Festival in May following Scottish Government advice.

The good news is that that we have arranged new Festival dates for the weekend of 9-11 October 2020 and we will be talking to authors to reschedule their visit.

Meantime please enjoy the programme we had prepared to launch this week. Click here to download the programme.
