More than forty events, a blend of live and digital, from a splendid cast of authors, stars of stage and screen, sporting heroes and political pundits will assemble over six days in the warmth of the Walter Scott Marquee, with additional outdoor events taking place in the spectacular grounds.  The house and café will remain open for visitors attending the Book Festival to be able to enjoy too.
