The Boswell Book Festival 2024

The Boswell Book Festival will take place with three days of events on Friday 10th, Saturday 11th & Sunday 12th May and in addition to the Main Festival there is also a children’s festival. This is a major and prestigious event and is the world’s only festival of Biography and Memoir which in the past has attracted household names such as Judi Dench and Frank Skinner.

One interesting appearance for sports fans is on Friday 10th May at 5.30pm when Rose Reilly MBE is appearing. Rose is the only Scottish person to win a Football World Cup Winners medal.

While the major events will be held at Dumfries House, other venue will also be used. Tickets range from £10-£12 with children’s events costing £3 or £2 for people within the KA18 postcode area.
