Borders Book Festival

New venue - new date:
moved from June to
02 - 07 of November 2021

A true highlight of the Borders' yearly events' calendar and incredibly popular with visitors and locals alike. 

Abbotsford House, the home of Sir Walter Scott, will stage this year’s festival in its grounds as part of the 250th anniversary celebrations of the life and work of Scotland’s greatest writer. The dates have also nudged further into the autumn to give this wonderful book festival the best possible chance of welcoming authors and visitors back safely.

Definitely a "don't miss" long weekend! Early bookings are highly recommended.

Programme out soon.
