Since 2013, the BOOKMARK Book Festival has been bringing to Blairgowrie its popular and friendly mix of the well-known and the new. The world of books, in rural Perthshire, is celebrated by listening to and engaging with leading writers of all genres.  Acclaimed novelists, crime authors, journalists, nature writers and photographers, historians, poets and singers are just some of the many who now declare BOOKMARK  to be their ‘favourite Book Festival’. Our main Festival is in October (7-8 2023) but we also offer ‘Meet the Author’ events throughout the year. Come and join us!

BOOKMARK Book Festival 2023

Bookmark was devastated that they had to cancel events owing to the disastrous flooding on Sunday 8 October. Besides none of their scheduled writers being able to reach Blairgowrie, many ticket holders and their Chair were in the same position. 

They are offering Perthshire Box Office ticket holders the following three options: 

Refund - a full refund is available for all cancelled events. 

Transfer - tickets can be transferred to next year, Sunday 6 Octover 2024 (all writers will be returning with the exception of Liam McIlvaney. BOOKMARK already has another first-rate writer in his place).

Donate - become a Friend of BOOKMARK by donating the cost of your unused tickets. This will sponsor an event in 2024 and your name will be acknowledged. 

Please register your choice by Saturday 28 October. If we don't hear from you by this date, it will be assumed that you have donated your ticket money to cover the costs of BOOKMARK 2023.

As we are a registered Scottish Charity (SCO45599) BOOKMARK thanks you for the donation.
