2023 Initial lineup announced

The Colonsay Book Festival is delighted to announce the opening line-up for its 2023 Festival. The initial raft of award-winning writers and authors appearing at this “wee gem of a festival on a jewel of an island” on 29 and 30 April this year are confirmed as: Louise Gray, Kathleen Jamie, Bernard MacLaverty, Sarah Thomas and Louise Welsh. Further programme details will be released in due course, but tickets for what promises to be an engaging and thought-provoking weekend go on sale as from today.


For the first time in twelve years, sadly, we’ve had to revise event ticket pricing to reflect the inevitable increases in costs we’ve seen over that time. Individual author sessions will now be £12, with a full weekend pass for all six sessions at £60 – but the ‘early bird’ weekend pass is just £55 if booked before the end of February. You can book it here.
