Welcome to the Book Festival

We staged a hybrid Book Festival in 2021 – a fabulous online programme of over 250 events for adults and children, which were all streamed live on the website. Alongside, we welcomed in-person audiences for a wide range of the events in the programme. Our new Festival home is the University of Edinburgh’s Edinburgh College of Art on Lauriston Place in the heart of Edinburgh’s Old Town.

Many of the events in the 2021 Festival programme can still be watched on-demand here on the website. Use the links below to find events.
