Family Book Festival - what will you see?
Saturday 6 & Sunday 7 November
Join us at Abbotsford for a fun-filled weekend for all ages at the Saltire Roofing & Building Family Book Festival. Come and explore the beautiful grounds - there’s lots of space to play, and great family walks too. Our outdoor café area serves a range of food and drink for adults and children. There’s lots of fun and fascinating books by all our children’s authors in the Festival Bookshop. Please feel free to come in and have a browse.
All accompanying adults go free! There is NO ENTRY CHARGE for adults accompanying children to Family Book Festival events. However, please note that all events are ticketed, so remember to put your FREE adult ticket in the basket at the time of booking. Tickets must be booked in advance for all events.
Accompanying children to events. Children under ten must be accompanied to all events and everyone attending needs a ticket. Space is limited so we can admit ticket holders only.
Age suitability. Ages in listings are for guidance only.
Photography and video. Official photography and videos may be taken throughout the festival and used in further publicity. No unofficial photography or filming is permitted, and our official media team will be wearing book festival identification.
