Book Festival 2017

A local literary hub

Cove and Kilcreggan Book Festival 2017 is almost upon us. For the next two days, Cove Burgh Hall will become not just a community hub but a literary hub as well - a place where you can listen to and converse with talented authors across a range of literary genres.

There are still tickets for most talks (including for Paul MacAlindin pictured above with members of the Iraqi National Youth Orchestra).

Here is a rundown of the programme:

Saturday 25th

10:30-11:30 Sara Trevelyan
12:00-13:00 - Jim Carruth
14:00-15:00 - Paul MacAlindin
15:30-16:30 - Jon Snow - SOLD OUT
19:30 - 21:00 - Ian Rankin - SOLD OUT

SUNDAY 26th (Food and drink theme)

10:30-11:30 - Sue Lawrence
12:00-13:00 - Magnus MacFarlane-Barrow

15:30-16:30 - Rachel McCormack


If you've booked for talks, you'll be able to pay and collect your tickets at the door. Even if you haven't booked, tickets will be available for sale at the door except for the talks that have sold out. If you have made reservations for Jon Snow or Ian Rankin but find you won't be able to attend, please let us know so the tickets can be re-allocated. Email Marion.

Tickets for all events are £6 for adults and £2.50 for children under 14. (CASH ONLY)


There is a cafe/bar in the Hall open for morning coffee from 10am, lunch 1-2pm, and on Saturday an evening bar from 6:30pm.

Book sales and signings

Books by the authors will be on sale in the library upstairs (CASH ONLY) with book signings taking place immediately after each talk.

Have a great Book Festival!
