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.

SPECIAL FESTIVAL OFFER, from Thursday 9th until Sunday 12th, £220 per night – FOR 12 PEOPLE.

It’s right on the sea in Prestwick. The sunsets are magnificent. It sleeps twelve in comfort, and is only twenty miles from Dumfries House. It’s fully equipped for self catering, has a hot tub for total relaxation, and is the perfect place to return to after the Festival.
