We'll meet again 

In the meantime, we are busy making plans to bring you the spirit of Wigtown online. From new commissions to classic archive events and Wigtown favourites on the web, put a little festival spirit in your everyday lockdown lives.

Find us in Wigtown, Scotland’s National Book Town

Designated Scotland's National Book Town in 1998 - by an international panel - Wigtown is home to a community of booksellers and literary events.

More than just a festival: what we do

Since the first Wigtown Book Festival in 1999, we have expanded to become an energetic arts organisation working through the year to deliver a programme of literature development activities in the Dumfries & Galloway region of south-west Scotland.
