The 2019 Festival Archive


The packed programme for the 2019 Festival focused on ‘our roots and who we are’. With this in mind we were delighted to welcome Leila Aboulela as our opening speaker. Our closing speaker was TV and radio journalist and broadcaster John Sergeant. In between these stellar bookends, attendees discovered an exceptional rangeof authors, poets, musicians, artists and speakers. There were also a variety of workshops including, for the first time, an outdoor one for adults. For a second time, the Earl of Moray gave a tour of the private art collection at Darnaway Castle.

We are indebted to all our funders and sponsors without whom we could not run the Festival, especially in this post-pandemic world.
