Book Festival 21 update...

We’ve discussed and debated at great length all the options of holding the festival in September this year, but in light of the continuing uncertainty surrounding the pandemic, we’ve finally come to the sad view that it just isn’t viable. We appreciate this is very disappointing for everyone. Sadly, however, it is the necessary and prudent approach.

We're now very much looking forward to 2022, and before then, to developing a membership scheme for Friends of the Colonsay Book Festival to help ensure this ‘wee gem of a festival’ continues. More on that in the near future.

In the meantime, stay safe and keep reading.
