Not long to go now to find out what’s inside the programme for the 10th Portobello Book Festival. We are looking forward to revealing the line-up for our 10th Festival which, as always, includes local authors as well as those from further afield. The Festival, which runs from Friday 5th – Sunday 7th October, offers the diversity of subjects and authors that has become a distinctive feature of our programme. To celebrate our 10th anniversary, and with the support of Creative Scotland, we are publishing a collection of original work Postcards from Portobello, which we hope reflects the diversity of Portobello life. This will be available free during the Festival.
You can pick up a copy of the programme at the Village Show in Rosefield Park on Sunday 2nd September from 2-5pm or it will be available from Portobello Library and various local businesses from next Monday. Tickets for all events are free and can be collected in person from the library from Monday 3rd September. Some tickets will be available 15 minutes before events.
The full programme will be published here next Monday with more detailed posts on each event following in the lead-up to the festival.
