5-8th October 2017


After a successful first run out last year, NessBookFest (NBF) is returning for 2017. This October we will be holding a four-day event with the emphasis on grassroots writing and local writers, as well as guest speakers.

NBF will be mainly located in the Central Library, with other events in schools and Waterstones Inverness. More fringe venues are yet be announced. Most events will be ticketed but free of charge to attend. Each event will last an hour or so, with ongoing children’s activities and some parallel sessions. Participants will include picture book and children’s authors, crime and thriller authors, poets, illustrators, non-fiction writers, publishers, etc etc.

There will also be a literary walking tour and various outreach activities, including workshops.

If you feel that your business could sponsor an event (we will do our best to link you up with something which is relevant for your business or give you a choice of which event to sponsor) or would consider donating to the Festival, we will of course acknowledge your business on all promotional materials as well as our website, Twitter and Facebook feeds.

We’d be delighted to speak to you in detail about your options if you were interested in being part of NessBookFest , offering something truly meaningful and inspiring to the community. Connecting Inverness people, young and old, with the Arts will have immeasurable benefits.

Will you be part of it?
