The Baillie Gifford Borders Book Festival will be commencing on Thursday 15 until Sunday 18 June.

It will be taking place in Harmony Gardens in Melrose.

The festival will involve up to 100 shows and events, including a one-woman show by actress Anne Reid and an audio-visual demonstration by MasterChef judge Jay Rayner.

In a climate of political turmoil and unease, we could all do with a dose of fun and entertainment, and the Baillie Gifford Borders Book Festival has it in spades. There are serious moments of reflection and contemplation too, as we examine our rapidly changing world.

This year the book festival has something for everyone and we look forward to welcoming our audience to Harmony Gardens to enjoy a truly memorable weekend.
