Literary appearance for Kilgraston School

Kilgraston School is delighted to announce that it will be making an appearance at this year’s Borders Book Festival in Melrose.

Described by literary-legends, Michael Palin and Prue Leith, as: “The best book festival in Britain,” now in its fifteenth year, the Baillie Gifford-sponsored festival is a four day literary feast, attracting an annual worldwide audience of 30,000.

Running from the 13-16 June 2019, this summer’s festival is even bigger than previous years, hosting over 100 events during the four days. Kilgraston is pleased to support the festival, which includes prominent speakers, Ruth Davidson MP, TV Presenter Kate Humble, BBC journalist, Kirsty Wark, F1 Legend David Coulthard, historian Neil Oliver, comedy great Alexei Sayle and renowned impressionist, Jan Ravens, among many, many more.

Festival Director, Alistair Moffat, said: “After a long winter and much discontent, the clouds are parting and a brilliant sun will shine on Harmony Garden in June. The marquees will rise, the seats will be set out, the sound systems installed, the show will begin and the spells of enchantment will weave their magic. For four glorious, glowing days, the world will come to Melrose to celebrate.”

In addition, throughout the four days, there will be live music, the Orchard tented food village and plenty of free, fun activities making the book festival a great day out for all the family to enjoy.

See you there!
