Literature has a significant place in Highland culture and life. The book festival is not just a showcase for Highland writers but also for writers from other parts of Scotland, and indeed the world, to come and create an inspirational atmosphere. It gives an opportunity for local people and visitors alike to hear the best the world of literature has to offer.
Next year the 15th Ullapool Book Festival will be held from Friday 10th to Sunday 12th May. The programme will be announced when tickets will go on sale.
But for those who trust us to produce a great programme, and who are happy to buy without knowing who the writers are, a full weekend ticket can be bought on early bird offer.
The festival website www.ullapoolbookfestival.co.uk lists all the guests who have appeared since the first festival in 2005; it makes very impressive reading.
