14th Nairn Book and Arts Festival

About image

The 2017 Festival is truly YOUR FESTIVAL, taking place only as a result of massive support from individuals, local businesses and civic organisations following a major funding challenge. We are hugely grateful to all, and realise how much the Festival is valued. You’ll find information on supporters and sponsors elsewhere in this programme, in which we hope everyone, locals and visitors, will find something of interest. You are welcome to watch, listen and participate in exhibitions, workshops, talks, and concerts. You’ll find acclaimed authors and poets, a great variety of music and visual arts, competitions and free children’s events.

Our cover this year is a stunning mosaic by local artist Fiona Rodger, reflecting the breadth of the Festival and our local community of Nairn and its surroundings. It will be on display throughout the Festival.

You can buy tickets here, or at the Community Centre or Nairn Bookshop, and keep in touch via Twitter, Facebook and our e-newsletter. Buy early to avoid disappointment, and bring your friends along.

We look forward to seeing you. Let’s make this the best Festival yet!
