Birnam Book Festival 2023

Whats On
October 2023

The Birnam Book Festival returns to showcase literature from Scotland and beyond in our beautiful corner of Perthshire, nestled between the hills and the River Tay.

Our Festival is an inclusive event for all ages, where the audience can participate in workshops, lively discussions with authors or just sit back and listen to inspiring speakers or enjoy great music with a literary theme. 

We’re delighted to be returning to our home venue of Birnam Arts for in person events again this year.
