Watch the launch of the 2020 Portobello Book Festival Programme online

Usually by now, we would have held the launch event for the Portobello Book Festival at the Dalriada and have handed out copies of the programme at the Village Show. Sadly, as we know, neither of these events have been able to take place this year.

But the 2020 Portobello Book Festival is still going ahead and today you can watch Mae Shaw talk about how we have adapted the book festival this very unusual year.


Keep an eye on the website tomorrow where full details of all events you can watch over the course of the weekend of 2nd to 4th October will be revealed.

All the events will be on line and to watch, all you need to do is come to the website during the weekend and click on the post to watch each event. All will be available to watch afterwards too so if you are busy, you don’t need to miss out!

  1. Love your introduction to the festival Mae – warm, personable, poignant; and beautifully written and spoken. I am really looking forward to dipping into it – especially Letters From Lockdown. Well done to you and all the organising team (digital refugees and tourists alike!) and authors, and a huge thank you for your passion, creativity and hard work. Though not a Porty resident, I am a friend and big fan of the locale and festival.
    Best wishes to you all.

    Love, Jo
