HISTORY’S BIGGEST CRIMES ALL THE GORY DETAILS

WELCOME TO BLOODY SCOTLAND 2017! We are delighted to announce the programme for our sixth festival in historic Stirling, featuring a truly international line-up of some of the biggest and most exciting names in crime fiction.

politician Vince Cable and deputy chief constable of Scotland, Iain Livingstone.

The weekend kicks off in the grandest style with a gala opening in the Great Hall of Stirling Castle with the launch of a Bloody Scotland short story anthology, the award of the McIlvanney Prize and a stunning torchlight procession from the castle to the Albert Halls. It is, of course, a castle fit for royalty and luckily, we have just that in Ian Rankin and Val McDermid, the king and queen of Scottish crime, who both celebrate 30 year anniversaries with special events.

There is a quiz, a play, forensics, the Scotland-England crime writers football match, a late-night gig from the Fun Lovin’ Crime Writers, a live podcast and Crime at the Coo. There continues to be a discount for local residents, tickets for the unemployed and this year we have improved disabled access and are providing a mini-bus between venues for those that need it. On the subject of venues, we are delighted to add Allan Park South Church hall as a new venue. Located at 41 Dumbarton Rd, Stirling FK8 2LQ and only a very short walk from the Albert Halls.

Other leading authors on the programme include the fabulous Lynda LaPlante, Chris Brookmyre, Peter May, Karen Rose, Mark Billingham, Chris Carter and Ann Cleeves. There are also familiar names such as actor Douglas Henshall,

The festival could not happen without its sponsors, most notably Bookdonors, Creative Scotland, Stirling Council and most recently Stirling Gin. Our thanks to them but most of all to you, the reading public. This is your festival.
