British Sign Language and Captioned Events

We work with experienced British Sign Language interpreters and live captioners to offer a selection of signed and captioned events for both adults and children. If you would like to request a BSL interpreter for an event not listed below, please contact the Box Office. Full details of our BSL On Request service can be found on our Access page.

The Edinburgh International Book Festival takes place from 10-25 August 2024. The programme will be available in June. Sign up for our ebulletins or follow us on social media to hear announcements and updates.

In the meantime, you can enjoy watching Festival events on the website, have a look at our Festival photographs, listen to or download free podcasts of event recordings and watch exclusive interviews and Festival highlights from past Book Festivals on our YouTube channel and your favourite podcast platforms.
