Wigtown Book Festival 2011

Wigtown was officially designated as Scotland's National Book Town in 1998 and is now home to over 20 book-related businesses. A book lovers' haven – and with over a quarter of a million books to choose from, old and new … it is impossible to escape empty-handed.

The annual festival of literary events is under way in Scotland's national book town in Dumfries and Galloway. The 10-day programme at Wigtown promises to include something for readers of all ages and tastes. Among those taking part this year are Sally Magnusson, Martin Bell, Maggie O'Farrell, Celia Imrie, Sarah Hall and Elaine C Smith. More than 100 writers are involved in the proceedings which come to a close on 2 October 2011.

“A must-attend event in Scotland’s cultural calendar” - The Times

“Wigtown doesn’t just punch above its weight when it comes to attracting big-name authors to its annual book festival, it punches above pretty much everybody else’s weight, too” - The Scotsman

One of the “best autumn festivals in the world” - Telegraph

“It’s refreshingly unstressed, set in stunning landscapes and with an enviably broad and sophisticated programme” - Scotland on Sunday
