YOUR FESTIVAL GUIDE QUICK LINKS
The Baillie Gifford Borders Book Festival 2021
Welcome to the magnificent new world of the Baillie Gifford Borders Book Festival! Okay, so a nineteenth century venue might be stretching the term ‘new’, but there can be no doubt that Abbotsford is magnificent and, as we celebrate Sir Walter Scott’s 250 years, there is no place we would rather be. With such an amazing backdrop, and an unrivalled cast list, all we’re missing is you – please join us!
Trust magazine, the free award-winning magazine from Baillie Gifford, is full of insightful articles on the innovations that are transforming the way we live and work, along with exclusive interviews with some of world’s most distinguished authors in non-fiction.
A New Media Partnership
We’re delighted to announce an exciting new partnership with the Financial Times, one of the world’s leading news organisations.
At this year’s festival, FTWeekend will host 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.
Sat 6 & Sun 7 November
Join us at Abbotsford for a fun-filled weekend for all ages at the Saltire Roofing & Building Family Book Festival!
Help keep Borders Book Festival alive!
The cancellation of the 2020 festival and the postponement of this year’s festival due to Covid-19 and the subsequent loss of ticket revenue and book sales is having a big impact on us. As a charity we rely heavily on the support and generosity of our regular Borders Book Festival goers.
If you feel you are able to donate to allow us to continue to deliver the festival this year and beyond, we would be most grateful.

From Instagram to Facebook and Twitter, we’ll be keeping our social media channels up to date throughout the festival.
