Details

Wigtown Festival Company runs the annual Wigtown Book Festival every autumn in Scotland’s National Book Town.

 

 

Wigtown Book Festival is delighted to announce that it is welcoming audiences and authors back to Scotland’s National Book Town this autumn following last year’s digital-only event.

Taking as its theme, “Hello Stranger”, the 2021 festival (22 September to 4 October) will be two days longer than in previous years, with more than 140 events for adults and young people, around half the pre-Covid number.

At the town’s heart will be a new, free outdoor venue, The Gardens, with a large screen and informal seating which aims to be Wigtown’s answer to Wimbledon’s Murray Mound. Selected live audience events will also be streamed from Wigtown to audiences around the world.

The full programme will be released on Friday, 13 August when booking is due to open online. But some of the authors attending the Dumfries & Galloway event in person include novelists Val McDermid, Francis Spufford and Salena Godden, philosopher AC Grayling, broadcasters Rory Cellan-Jones and biographer Emma Soames.

The 10 (12) day festival features author talks, music, visual arts, film, and performances for the whole family. There are over 250 events and activities with dedicated children’s and young people’s programmes.

As well as the main festival we run other activities across Dumfries & Galloway throughout the year. These include workshops in schools, creative writing weeks, lecture weekends and events run with other organisations e.g Peter Pan Moat Brae Trust, The Stove, D&G Arts Festival and Upland.
