Get INvolved

Support Nessbook fest

NessBookFest is a Community Effort to bring a #NoBarriers book festival to Inverness and the Highlands. Restarted in 2016, support has snowballed for the wily wee festival helping to bring us in to our 4th year. All of our events are completely free made possible by all our wonderful sponsors and volunteers. With an expansive programme of ~40 events taking place throughout inverness, there’s something for everyone; from crime & thriller to science fiction, academic and creative, workshops, readings & panels, illustrators and a full children’s programme brought to local schools. Were keen to support and promote local creators. The festival is once a year for a few magical days in October though keep an eye out for our year round events and workshops!
