HARMONY GARDEN • MELROSE • SCOTTISH BORDERS
Thanks to all our authors, performers, audiences and supporters for joining us for four fabulous days of talks, comedy, live music, food & drink, and much, much more. This year’s festival might be over, but we’re already planning for next year.
Dates for the diary are:
15-18 June 2023
As part of Borders Book Festival’s celebrations of Scotland’s Year of Stories, we filmed three iconic authors on visits to three of our region’s most fascinating and inspiring attractions. To see what moved, entertained, and surprised Joanna Lumley, Val McDermid and Andrew Marr at Melrose’s Trimontium Museum, Abbotsford – home of Sir Walter Scott, and the Great Tapestry of Scotland in Galashiels, watch for free.
The 2022 Borders Book Festival programme was interwoven with events that celebrate the wealth of stories inspired by, written or created in Scotland.

A New Media Partnership
We’re delighted to continue our partnership with the Financial Times, one of the world’s leading news organisations.
At our 2022 festival, FTWeekend hosted a series of insightful and thought-provoking conversations addressing a number of the biggest political and economic issues of the day, with some of the brightest minds from the world of journalism, politics, economics, diplomacy and academia. Full details can be found in the festival programme.
