Wigtown Spring Book Weekend 2017

24 March 2017

Wigtown’s annual Spring Book Weekend takes place from 28 April – 1 May 2017 with events situated in the town’s collective of second hand bookshops. This year’s programme covers events on a range of subjects from archaeology to zoology and, for the first time, there’s a party at each end of the weekend. With more than 30 events to choose from, we hope you’ll find something to entice you to Scotland’s National Book Town over the weekend.


Wigtown’s host of bookshops, cafes and restaurants, galleries and shops will be open for you to visit between events, and the Spring Kist takes place in the County Buildings on Saturday 29 and Sunday 30 April showcasing local, regional and national art, craft, food and drink products. We hope you enjoy the mix of literature, music, food and minds as springtime comes to Galloway.
