St Duthac Book & Arts Festival to launch September 2021

The first Book and Arts Festival to be held on the Easter Ross Peninsula will take place in and around the Royal Burgh of Tain this September 2021.

The five-day event will have something for everyone, bringing together events for book, art, and heritage lovers, in one neat package, from its launch on 23 September until its close on 27 September.

The Book and Arts Festival proudly takes its name from the Patron Saint of Tain – St Duthac – and shines a light on Scotland’s oldest Royal Burgh, Tain and the surrounding communities to celebrate their unique heritage as well as contemporary artists and authors.

In addition to many published local authors, Scottish broadcaster and writer Sally Magnusson and medieval historian Dr Tom Turpie will be part of the first St Duthac Book & Arts Festival.

The Easter Ross Peninsula with its spectacular beaches, trails and attractions is a haven for explorers. The planned programme of events will take you on a journey across the peninsula, allowing you to immerse yourself in the written and spoken word through author events, workshops, arts and heritage trails and a pop-up book shop with gallery in the centre of Tain.
